Public Feedback Sought On Regional Government Review

Orillia | by Ian MacLennan  

Ford government is reviewing local governance in Simcoe County and its lower-tier municipalities.

Orillia-area residents are being asked to weigh in online about a review of local government.

The Ford government is seeking input from Simcoe North residents on how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery.

In January,  the province announced it would review 8 regional government's (Durham, Peel, York, Halton, Waterloo, Oxford County, Muskoka District, Niagara), as well as the County of Simcoe and its lower tier municipalities.

There are 16 lower tier municipalites in Simcoe County including Oro-Medonte, Severn and Ramara.

Two advisors have been hired to review the feedback and hold public consultations this spring, with recommendations to come in the summer.

The deadline to submit comments is April 23.
