“Residents, visitors, businesses and investors want to be able to access community information and municipal services at a time and place convenient to them – and that means from their favourite device outside of regular Municipal Hall business hours,” said communications officer Karen Miller. “The Lake Country website is mobile-responsive, fully accessible and offers the opportunity to subscribe to email notification for news, water quality, construction and other public notice alerts, as well as Council meetings and community calendar events and job postings.”
