Madawaska Valley staff and council toured schools around our area as part of Local Government Week.

From October 18th to 24th, representatives from the township were visiting elementary classrooms. They were collecting input on the future of municipal government and feedback on local issues like the Sherwood-Madawaska Valley District High School merge in September 2016.

Mayor Kim Love opened last night’s council meeting with comments on her experience. This included getting some hard questions during a Jeopardy game at George Vanier Catholic School in Combermere.

The township also recognized Ontario Public Library Week and Ontario Waste Reduction Week last month.
