2019-09-23 Withdrawal from RWG (County Ratepayers) September 23, 2019 Attention: County of Newell Rate Payers RE: Discontinuation of Regionalization Discussions This letter is distributed for the purpose of confirming that County Council has formally withdrawn from Regionalization discussions that were underway with some of the County’s neighboring urban communities. That decision was made respecting concerns raised by residents of the County. It has always been and continues to be Council’s position that elected representatives need to respect, respond to, and advance the interests of the public to whom Elected Officials are accountable. With the regionalization option off the table, Council now needs to proceed with working out the terms of Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework (ICF) Agreements required under the Municipal Government Act by April 1, 2020. Council is committed to effectively representing and serving the long-term needs of Newell residents with our work on the ICF agreements. The impacts of shifting economic times within our county and province are sure to add an extra dynamic. Efforts will be made to keep the public informed on the progress made during the ICF negotiation process.
