Ohura Town Board/Town Council
The Ohura Town Board was created in 1918 for the township of Ohura. In 1955 the Municipal Corporations Act 1954 renamed all Town Boards as Town Councils. In 1976 the Ohura Town Council merged into Taumarunui County and all administrative matters were taken over by the County (gazetted 25 March 1976). Following the amalgamation a Community Council was set up, which ceased in 1989.
