TOWNSHIP COMMUNICATIONS POLICY ADOPTED
At their meeting on September 1st, Council adopted a communications strategy. The Township believes that good governance requires an ongoing, symmetrical exchange of ideas. Information must flow not only from the municipality to stakeholders, but from stakeholders to the municipality. The communications policy considers both internal and external stakeholders and aims to provide strategic direction to Council and staff to improve the exchange of information and ideas.

As part of this communications policy, Councillors are now contributing blogs to the website. Check out these council blogs, here.

OPP Citizen Self-Reporting
The Ontario Provincial Police is pleased to offer Citizen Self Reporting, an alternative reporting option that allows the public to report specific crimes to police via the internet, anywhere, anytime. The OPP’s Citizens Self Reporting system allows members of the public to use a computer or mobile device to report an incident without requiring an officer to attend the scene.
Citizen Self Reporting is simple and convenient and can be used when reporting incidents that do not involve injury or a suspect, or a crime that is not an emergency. The use of this new system is completely optional. Police will still attend a call for service if desired.
