There’s an opportunity for residents of Bradford West Gwillimbury and other municipalities in Simcoe County to make their own presentations to the advisors overseeing the province’s regional governance review.
The review was announced earlier this year by Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Steve Clark, and was billed as an exercise in finding efficiencies for local and regional services. The review is being led by special advisors Michael Fenn and Ken Seiling.
In a media release issued earlier this month, the Ontario government announced those who are living or working in a municipality affected by the review could make their own presentations to Fenn and Seiling.
“Our government wants to make sure that the experience of real people is front of mind in every decision we make,” states the release.
Those wishing to make a presentation to the advisors can register online as of April 3. The advisors will be scheduling meetings in all eight regional municipalities covered by the review, including Simcoe County, Halton, York, Durham, Waterloo, Niagara, Peel, Muskoka District, and Oxford County.
"It's important to me that the people who live, work and spend time in the municipalities covered by the review can share their thoughts on how we can improve regional governance," said Clark in the media release.
There is also an online survey open to the public until May 21 as a means to provide feedback on regional and local service delivery and governance.
