Local Focus Taupō transforming into 'mini-metro'

With a clean bill of health after receiving a kidney transplant from his wife, Taupō mayor David Trewavas is preparing to bid for a third term.

"The whole district is transitioning from a smaller provincial district. I like to call it a mini-metro. You've got the problems with growth, or advantages of growth, but that of course brings all the issues with it."
