Thank you for your request today for the following information: 

the number of people employed in your public library service. 

the number of people employed in your public library service being paid less than $20.55 
per hour. 

Please find below information relevant to your request, which we have released under the Local 
Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.  
Carterton District Council employs five staff to provide public library services.  
Of these, between one and five of them are being paid less than $20.55 per hour. 
I have decided to withhold the number of those being paid less than $20.55 per hour under section 
7 (2) (a) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987, ie to protect the 
privacy of natural persons, including that of deceased natural persons. In line with local government 
policy for disclosing remuneration, we do not provide statistics for fewer than five employees as it 
may be possible to identify remuneration for individuals. 
You have the right to seek a review of our response/these decisions by way of complaint to the 
Ombudsman, under section 27(3) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 
Yours sincerely
