Midhurst/January 9, 2024 – Today, County Council voted to support a recommendation that I (as Warden) represent Council in making a submission to the Standing Committee on Heritage, Infrastructure and Cultural Policy that confirms the County's positions on its role and services within the region.
As Simcoe County faces rapid growth and demand for significant infrastructure investments, there is great benefit to ensuring efficient regional service systems are maintained, as well as providing coordination of plans and investments that cross municipal borders.
Council also endorsed a motion that we request to the Province that another Standing Committee hearing be held at the Simcoe County Administration Centre as part of the formal review process, so that the County, along with our 16 member municipalities and two separated cities, can consult and provide further input.
We look forward to engaging the Province and Committee further and continuing to work with our municipalities to best serve our residents now and into the future.
~ Warden Basil Clarke
