King Country sign renewed
A portrait of King Tawhiao which has graced the northern entrance to Taumarunui for more than 30 years comes down today.
Rebecca Van Orden from the Ruapehu District Council says the area is being redeveloped with new planting along the riverbank and a walkway down to the river landing.
The old sign will be gifted to the Kingitanga, and it's hoped Kingi Tuheitia will unveil its replacemment on May 15.
