FORT ERIE (August 16, 2022) – Town of Fort Erie leaders join more than 1,700 participants from almost 444 municipalities across Ontario at the 2022 Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Conference held from August 14 to August 17.
AMO is the top educational forum for municipal governments, connecting municipal officials directly with newly elected Ontario government to identify solutions to the most significant challenges municipalities face today. AMO allows attendees to unearth innovative new ideas through 60 speakers, workshops, and broad-scope sessions on municipal responsibilities.
While attending the AMO Conference, Fort Erie leaders will present to Ministry officials regarding critical areas of need that directly affect the community. Topics include primary health care, physician recruitment, local health services, preserving 24/7 Urgent Care, funding for essential infrastructure (water, wastewater, roads, high-speed internet), sustainability of the Fort Erie Racetrack, and several other priorities that will require funding support for our future.
“AMO has provided a great opportunity for Fort Erie to meet directly with Ministers and Ministry staff to discuss local concerns that affect our community. We were able to share some of our challenges while also showcasing Fort Erie as a provincial asset in terms of culture, Indigenous relations, geography, and strategic location that sets us apart from other municipalities.”– Mayor Wayne Redekop
