*************************
The Ontario government is putting people first by seeking local input on how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery for regional governments and member municipalities.

All people who live or work in Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte are invited to share their thoughts through the online consultation.

The deadline to submit comments is April 23, 2019.

“We promised the people of Ontario that all levels of government would work harder, smarter and more efficiently,” said Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “Our government is putting people first by seeking local input on how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery for regional governments and their member municipalities.”

In addition to meeting with municipalities and stakeholder groups, special advisors Michael Fenn and Ken Seiling will assess the feedback received through the online consultation. They will provide their advice and recommendations to Minister Clark this summer.

“Ontario’s system of regional government has been in place for almost 50 years. I am confident we will see active participation in the consultation across Simcoe County,” said local MPP Doug Downey. “I am looking forward to hearing the feedback of our communities, and learning more about what’s working and how improvements can be made to ensure effective and efficient services.”
