“Government closest to the people”
… many times that is how local government is described. Council for the Township of Hilton wants to ensure its ratepayers that is the type of governance it offers.
According to the Municipal Act, Council’s role is:
¨ To represent the public and to consider the well-being and interest of the municipality;
¨ To develop and evaluate the policies and programs of the municipality;
¨ To determine which services the municipality provides;
¨ To ensure that administrative policies, practices and procedures are in place to implement the decisions of council;
¨ To ensure the accountability and transparency of the operations of the municipality, including the activities of the senior management of the municipality;
¨ To maintain the financial integrity of the municipality; and
¨ To carry out the duties of council under this or any other Act.
Council meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Municipal Office at 2983 Base Line, Hilton Beach, Ontario, P0R 1G0. All meetings are open to the public. Anyone who wishes to address Council should contact the Clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org) one week prior to the scheduled meeting date so that the matter can be added to the Agenda. Alternatively, an individual may contact any council member directly.
