Given the wholesale change in Council this past fall, and an animated election where diverse community interests spoke unequivocally about their priorities, your new Council concluded, early in our mandate, that the development of a two year Work Plan was imperative to ensuring that we tackled issues and concerns in a coherent and holistic matter.
To that end, over the last several months, Council began meeting with a seasoned strategic planner to discuss the development of an approach to some of the priority themes which dominated the election period, and which Council believes it must deliver on given its mandate of transparency, collaboration and responsiveness.
The North Grenville Police Services Board (PSB) has launched the 2019 Community Survey to gather input from the public to help identify local priorities for the delivery of police services in the Municipality.
The North Grenville Police Services Board is proud to recognize the youth of our community for achievements in leadership and good citizenry. A semi-annual award has been established by the Board to be presented at the Kemptville Youth Centre to young persons identified as having demonstrated: a positive attitude and respect for others; continuing leadership and support of the Kemptville Youth Centre, and the community at large.

The Council of North Grenville is pleased to advise that they have established eight advisory committees, including four new ones, and that they are now looking for passionate and dedicated volunteers to serve on the committees.
There will be a Public Meeting & Discussion Forum at Kemptville Campus on May 27, 6:30 – 8:30PM, at the W.B. George Centre.
This is an opportunity for members of the public to learn how the Municipality of North Grenville is guiding current and future activity at the Campus since the municipality acquired 626 acres of the old Kemptville College in April 2018.
Members of the public and community groups are invited to join their new Municipal Council to share their thoughts on what’s happened thus far, and ideas being considered for the future.
