Lincoln Council’s Future Focus

At tonight’s Council meeting (7:00pm January 5th, 2015 – Council Chambers – 4800 S. Service Road, Beamsville), Council presents the document that it has been working on since shortly after the election. Councillors for the 2014-2018 term met regularly with a very talented facilitator to bring our ideas to the table. Those ideas are based on what we heard during our campaign period from residents – What should our priorities be?

In order to ensure that we perform measurably, we narrowed all of our concerns and goals to five main areas for focus – and we will refer to this document throughout our term.
