North Grenville, ON – As part of Council’s on-going commitment to enhance communication, the Municipality is pleased to announce the launch of the “Mayor’s Media Briefing” which will take place every Tuesday morning at 10:00 am following Committee of the Whole meetings.
“As Council, we realize that the public relies on the local media for their Municipal information and sometimes the media have conflicting events and may not be able to attend a meeting, so we felt that holding regular media briefings would provide an additional opportunity for questions to be asked and answered,” stated Mayor David Gordon.
This initiative is set to begin on Tuesday, January 19th at 10:00 a.m. in the Executive Board Room at the Municipal Centre. CAO Brian Carré will be joining Mayor Gordon to respond to administrative questions while the Mayor will address policy related inquiries.
CAO Brian Carré noted that “having an established schedule for regular Media Briefings will help ensure that information is provided regarding, not only items discussed at a meeting, but on other topics which may be of interest or concern in the broader community.”
The launch of the “Mayor’s Media Briefing” is the most recent in a series of new Municipal initiatives aimed at providing enhanced communications between the Municipality and constituents including a new Municipal website, regular media releases, the hiring of a Communications Coordinator and a continually increasing presence on social media.
