“Through the vision of Council, and the dedication of King’s talented staff, the Township continues to deliver on Council’s priorities and objectives as approved in the 2019 to 2022 Corporate Strategic Plan.

The pandemic brought with it program closures, challenges around staffing, hardship in people’s personal lives and day-to-day uncertainty. Township staff have remained resilient, dedicated to providing high-quality service. King gets an A+ for completing so many of the key actions identified in the 2019-2022 Corporate Strategic Plan.”
