Roads 101 Roundtables rolling out across Kawartha Lakes

18 September, 2019

Deputy Mayor Doug Elmslie has been hosting Roads 101 Roundtables across the municipality since August 28. The first three sessions were held in Lindsay, Manvers and Omemee.

“The Roads 101 Roundtables have offered some spirited dialogue, some very good questions and comments so far. We’ve received several recommendations that will be included in my final report to Council. Staff have been front and centre at these sessions and have been candid in answering the tough questions. I believe we are achieving our goal of providing residents with some solid information about the challenges the municipality faces with our road network. At the same time, residents are being pro-active with suggestions, comments and questions. This continues to gives Councillors an understanding of constituent issues and concerns,” commented Doug Elmslie.

There will be four more Roads 101 Roundtables throughout Kawartha Lakes and everyone is welcome to come and listen in. To become a participant in a roundtable discussion, please contact your local Councillor.

Join in with the roads conversation at www.jumpinkawarthalakes.ca. Register to learn more about how roads are built and maintained in Kawartha Lakes, ask questions and submit your ideas. Background information is available on the municipal website.

Each discussion will begin with an introduction from Deputy Mayor Elmslie and a brief presentation about roads. Community representatives will then discuss the roads in Kawartha Lakes with the Deputy Mayor. From each roundtable, three recommendations will be decided by the participating members. Deputy Mayor Elmslie will then present all the recommendations from every Roads 101 Roundtable to Council at the end of 2019.
