Township Government

Municipal Government

The administration of local government is handled by the municipal public service. It is made up of officials and employees appointed by an elected council and is organized into departments. Council members are politicians who are voted into office in municipal elections. School trustees and some other local officials are also elected. Council members are generally non-partisan and run for office as individuals.                                                                                                                                                                                                           The Township employ staff to look after roads; sewers; fire prevention; recycling and waste disposal programs;  parking enforcement; city recreation (parks, sports facilities, local paths);  and by-law enforcement. Most municipal councils establish committees to direct and control the public service. Each committee makes recommendations to the municipal council. Committees deal with issues ranging from transportation to policing to finances.
