Why is Kawartha Lakes using an online public engagement platform?
Traditional public consultation usually involves attending public meetings, open houses or providing written submissions to Council, and this can often be time consuming, inconvenient and sometimes intimidating. Using an online engagement platform is an effective way for Kawartha Lakes to reach more residents and to give residents an opportunity to bring ideas forward and have their say on issues that are important to them.
