Niagara, Ontario — Sam Oosterhoff, MPP for Niagara West, is seeking local input on how to improve governance, decision-making and service delivery for regional governments in the Niagara Region.
All people who live or work in the region 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.
“I look forward to receiving the recommendations and hearing what is working in the regions and Simcoe County, and what can be improved,” said Minister Clark.
The government is committed to working with municipalities to help ensure that they have effective local governance and decision-making, and are providing services quickly and efficiently.
“I encourage everyone in the Niagara region to participate,” said MPP Oosterhoff, “as this is an important review that will have significant impact on the local governance for years to come.”
