Foxton Borough Council

HDC 3.0

Has End Date

The Foxton Borough Council was formed from the Foxton Town Board in 1888.

On 3 October 1920 a fire destroyed the Municipal Offices, Council Chambers and Public Library. The HDC 00021:5:5 Council minutes record that "with the exception of a fair portion of the contents of the offices, the whole building had become a total loss". It is unclear from this what impact the fire had on the Foxton Borough records, but it is clear that some survived the fire.

The Borough continued until 1989 when it was amalgamated with a number of other authorities to form the Horowhenua District Council.
