Kingston Residents’ Input Sought on Frontenac County Shared Services

Published on: 2020/08/26 - in News

The County of Frontenac Council reports it will host a virtual public meeting to receive input on its 2021 budget and service levels on Wednesday, September 16 at 9:30am.

This is an opportunity for Kingston residents to weigh in on the budgets for Frontenac Paramedics’ land ambulance service and Fairmount Home for the Aged – shared services provided by Frontenac County and funded, in large part, by Kingston property taxpayers.

Kingston City Council decided at its August 11 meeting to have these services listed as separate items on property tax bills starting in 2021 since the City of Kingston has no authority over the costs related to these shared services.

“As neighbours, it’s important that we continue to work together to ensure we maximize taxpayer dollars to provide the highest level of service to residents in our two communities,” said CAO Lanie Hurdle.

Registration and details about the meeting format can be found on this County web page.
