Elliot Lake council has passed a bylaw facilitating funding for a regional review, which includes four neighbouring municipalities.
Special Projects Manager Steven Antunes says the Municipal Modernization Review Stream will assist municipalities to improve or streamline service delivery by working together.
The application was successful, adds Antunes, providing half a million dollars in funding so the next step is to put out a Request for Proposal for the review to be carried out.
He adds the review will include bylaws and enforcement, landfills, and building services.
Antunes says the final report must be completed by January 31st, 2022 for the municipalities to receive all the funding.
