Municipal Leader – Spring 2011
With a provincial election upcoming on October 4, 2011, the time is right for the AMM to challenge all parties by asking: what are you going to do to put communities first this election? Our Special Report by the same name outlines why there is a need, what are the issues, how to get started, and much, much more.
It wouldn’t be summer without weeds and we’ve also got an article about weed districts (including why municipalities should belong to one).
Municipalities have lots of innovative ideas and we’ve showcased them this issue, both in a recap of our Municipal Excellence Awards and in an article about some neat things municipalities are doing to recycle scrap tires. And did you know Manitoba has another designated “safe” community? Check out “And Furthermore” to find out who!
Finally, we get to know Mayor Tim Johnston from the City of Thompson. Find out why Johnston says “I truly believe Thompson’s best days lie ahead”.
