This week at GC, Council received the annual reports to the community for 2019 and 2020. These reports are developed to provide an overview of the Town’s performance over the year. This year, we reviewed 2 years of reports as the 2019 report was postponed due to the pandemic.
These reports are an excellent way for everyone to see what steps the Town has taken to advance our priorities and to highlight some of the achievements. From investing in our town and building for the future with Library Sq and the new fire hall, to implementing updated and new plans to ensure we grow appropriately and protect our environment, I have always found these reports very useful. They provide both a clear overview of both what has been done to further our community vision and what is to still to come.
The annual reports – 2019 and 2020 – also make clear that we have been fiscally responsible as a Municipality and are thus well positioned financially as we move through this pandemic and work to “build back better”. I would suggest that each of you take the time to read through the reports as the information is valuable. They provide facts regarding how our Town has fared over the last 2 years – how we have navigated through the pandemic and a brief look into our future.
As I have said many times, these are exciting times for our Town that will see significant revitalization of our Downtown core while we continue to maintain that small-town charm that makes Aurora the most desirable place to live.
