The province is looking for local input on how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery for regional governments and regional municipalities.
“Our government wants to make sure that the experience of real people is front of mind in every decision we make,” they said in a release on Monday.
Those who live and work in communities covered by the province’s review can register online starting April 3, 2019 to make presentations to the special advisers — Michael Fenn and Ken Seiling — who they say will assess the feedback and provide their advice and recommendations to Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Steve Clark this summer.
“Our government is working for all Ontarians. We are committed to providing taxpayers with efficient and effective service delivery that shows respect for their hard-earned dollars,” said Clark in the release.
“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.”
Online registration opens on April 3, 2019. More details are available atOntario.ca/regionalgovernment.
