Picton – The County of Prince Edward will educate the public about the role the municipality plays in the community during Local Government Week October 19-23.
“The pandemic has reinforced the importance of local government. The County is here to respond to any challenge and support the community, while also continuing to deliver the essential services and programs residents and businesses rely on every day,” Mayor Steve Ferguson says.
Local Government Week activities have moved online this year due to the COVID-19 protocols. The Clerk’s Office and Prince Edward County Fire and Rescue have partnered to host virtual interactive sessions with Grade 5/6 students at four local schools: Massassauga-Rednersville Public School, Kente Public School, CML Snider School, and Sonrise Christian Academy. The sessions will educate students on municipal government and the local services the County provides, as well as inspire them to get involved and make a difference.
Throughout the week, The County will share interesting facts and figures about the municipality and its various departments on social media. Visit The County’s Facebook and Twitter pages and follow the hashtag #LGWPEC to learn how the local government impacts your everyday life.
The municipality encourages schools to participate in local government activities throughout the school year. For more information, please contact Catalina Blumenberg, Clerk, at 613.476.2148 extension 1021 or email email@example.com.
