Council Highlights June 19th, 2023
The Township of Huron-Kinloss Council meeting was held in Council Chambers at 21 Queen Street in Ripley at 7:00 p.m.
Highlights from the meeting include:
Strategic Plan 2023-2033: Blueprint for Our Future
A delegation to Council, Deloitte, presented their Strategic Plan 2023-2033: Blueprint for Our Future. Staff received seven proposals for the Strategic Planning process and through a Steering Committee decided to work with Deloitte for the new Plan. The Manager of Strategic Initiatives prepared a report to Council outlining their decision.
The goal of the creation of a new Strategic Plan for the Township of Huron-Kinloss plan is to provide a roadmap for the next 10 years and can be reviewed in each term of Council. It will guide the responsible use of resources, effectiveness and efficiency in municipal service delivery and accountability. There will be community information and engagement sessions to work towards a set of prioritized goals and objectives that can be measured and monitored. These sessions will be available on our engagement website, Have Your Say HK, in the coming months.
