Regular council meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, with the exception of only one meeting in July, August and December.  They are usually held in the Council Chambers at the Township office (3560 County Road 26, Prescott).  All residents are welcome to attend Council meetings.

We encourage our community to take an active interest in their governance, and invite you to contact your elected officials with any questions or concerns.

The Council consists of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and three Councillors. The current Council was elected in 2018 for a term beginning on December 3, 2018 and ending November 14, 2022.
