Councillor Villemaire was also appointed to serve on AMO’s Audit Committee in 2012. As a member of the Board Councillor Villemaire will help set policy for the Association and serve as a key municipal leader in the Province.
“I am looking forward to working with my colleagues on mutual issues and concerns,” Coun. Villemaire said. “It is a privilege to represent the interests of Kawartha Lakes and other single-tiers at the provincial table. The networking opportunities are truly endless.”The association develops policy positions and reports on issues of general interest to municipal governments; conducts ongoing liaison with provincial government elected and non-elected representatives; informs and educates governments, the media and the public on municipal issues; markets innovative and beneficial services to the municipal sector; and maintains a resource centre on issues of municipal interest.
AMO is a non-profit organization representing almost all of Ontario’s 444 municipal governments, supporting strong and effective municipal government in Ontario and promoting the value of municipal government as a vital and essential component of Ontario and Canada’s political system. The AMO board of directors has representation from communities across the province.
