Message from the CAO

 

Welcome to the Town of Gravenhurst's website. Our goal is to provide a clear path to the information that is helpful to you whether you are looking for information on living, visiting or doing business in Gravenhurst.

The Mission for the Town is to, “preserve and enhance the quality of life in Gravenhurst through exceptional and responsible service delivery.”  In support of that Mission, the objective for our Administration is to strengthen accountability and communication with our Community and stakeholders alike. Staff continues to provide our residents, taxpayers and visitors the excellent customer service that they deserve by working collaboratively with each other and Council. We are committed to continuous improvement in operational and financial efficiencies within the organization in order to provide a more efficient, fiscally responsible and business friendly culture.

As Chief Administrative Officer of this amazing community, I am very excited to work with a committed Mayor and Council, as well as a very dedicated and knowledgeable group of staff that oversees the operations of all Town departments.

We have some uncertain times ahead with a new Provincial Government implementing systemic, regulatory and financial changes that will impact how the Town does business into the future.  Civic engagement and a collective understanding of the priorities for the Town to deliver on will be critical for achieving sustainability and success.   Community awareness around budget development, growth and a revised strategic plan among other things will be an important part of that civic engagement. 

Glen B. Davies, Chief Administrative Officer
