(Note from NAL publisher Doug Draper Beware the dog days of August. In the first version of this post I sent out earlier this August 22nd I had a typo in the headline, showing my old hometown of Welland – yes, the place where I was born and spent the first two decades of my life – as Weeland. I think Welland is going through enough problems in recent years without me doing a butcher job on the name ….. Sorry Welland! Now when are these dog days going to end.)

Niagara Region, Ontario– At the Annual Conference of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), Paul Grenier, Councillor, Region of Niagara, was elected to the AMO Board of Directors, Regional & Single Tier Caucus.  As a member of the Board Paul will help set policy for the Association and serve as a key municipal leader in the Province.

“AMO benefits from membership from across the Province, and a Board that reflects the diversity of Ontario’s municipal governments.  To that end, I am pleased to have Paul on the 2016 – 2018 Board team,” said AMO President, Lynn Dollin.

“I look forward to advocating for municipal priorities on behalf of other Regional governments and the Niagara region over the course of the next two years,” said Councillor Grenier.

Niagara Regional Chair Alan Caslin added, “As a Regional Councillor, Paul’s local knowledge and action on waste management, social housing, and long term care will benefit both the Niagara region and other Regional and single tier governments across Ontario.”

AMO’s key advocacy priorities are focused on achieving fiscal sustainability for municipal governments, advancing federal, provincial partnerships for infrastructure and strengthening municipal legislative authority to advance local economic prosperity and environmental sustainability.

AMO is a non-profit organization representing almost all of Ontario’s 444 municipal governments.  AMO supports strong and effective municipal government in Ontario and promotes the value of municipal government as a vital and essential component of Ontario and Canada’s political system.
