Amalgamation is a dirty word in Wasaga Beach

Wasaga Beach | by Ian MacLennan  

Town council says amalgamation is not a solution the province's regional government review.

Wasaga Beach council is opposed to amalgamation as a solution to the objectives of the province's regional government review.

In January, the Ford government tapped two experts to conduct the review of the County of Simcoe and its 16 lower-tier municipalities, which includes Wasaga Beach.

Mayor Nina Bifolchi says the town is an effective and efficient provider of local services, adding tax rates are among the lowest of urban municipalities in the county.

The PC's say the review is a search for ways to cut red tape and efficiencies.

In response,  town staff have identified services currently delivered by the town and the county that could be re-aligned to eliminate duplication and save money.
