The session involves all 32 County councilors, an external facilitator and should be completed by July. As an FYI, Midland Council should be holding its third strategy planning meeting towards the end of the month (date to be announced).

Summer should be a time of few worries. We all need to take a few precautions to make sure that we are safe. The following is an important message from our Midland police.

Midland Police Service would like to remind the public to “Lock it or Lose it…”
·        Keep your vehicle locked at all times when not in use
·        Remove valuables from your vehicle that are in plain sight
·        Lock up your bicycles at all times
·        Keep out buildings and doors locked to your home at all times
In March and April 2011, (50%) or more of all thefts were a result of people leaving property in plain view, or not securing property. 
Please do your part and lock it up!

Please help our good police officers help you. Thank you.
