Shared Services Opportunities


TOWNSHIPS OF CENTRAL AND NORTH FRONTENAC

For Immediate Release:  March 24, 2015

 


 The Councils of the Townships of Central Frontenac and North Frontenac held a Joint Councils Meeting on March 19th to discuss Shared Services Opportunities.

 

North Frontenac Mayor Ron Higgins opened the meeting by saying, “This meeting will be a great opportunity to look at reducing costs and promoting working together for the better good of service delivery, satisfaction of our residents and good fiscal responsibility”.

“I totally agree with Mayor Higgins. This is our first brainstorming session, we are all in this together, looking at partnerships for our communities and there are no hidden agendas,” said Central Frontenac Mayor Francis Smith.

As a first step, each Council approved an individual resolution, approving in principle a Joint Service Agreement for the Building Departments of Central and North Frontenac Townships (i.e. one Chief Building Official and one Building Inspector).

Both Councils feel that the Townships cannot accomplish all that needs to be done without working together and agreed to meet again in May.

Copies of the Joint Councils Meeting minutes will be available on both Township’s websites: www.centralfrontenac.com or www.northfrontenac.com, once approved by their respective Council, or can be obtained from the Township Offices.
