Red Tape Reduction Task Force

On March 13, 2020, Council passed a number of motions related to precautions to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and to help ensure our community’s wellbeing.

All County Council advisory committees meetings will be cancelled until April 21, 2020, at which time Council will consider whether to extend cancellations.
