Comments should be related to the posted topic for the Council's social media page or post. Timaru District Council social media accounts are not meant for comments that do not directly relate to the purpose or topic of the social media website.
You are subject to the Terms of Service (TOS) of the host site.

This comment policy is subject to amendment or modification at any time.
Users are welcome to submit or post content, including photographs and videos, to an official Timaru District Council social media site where the channel allows users to post content, the content meets the standards articulated in this Customer Use Policy and pertains to the subject of the social media site. Users may only post their own, original content. Reproduced or borrowed content that reasonably appears to violate third party rights will be deleted.
Due to the changing nature of the world wide web, this policy may be changed at any time at the Council's discretion without notice.
