Newmarket receives grant from the
Province of Ontario to conduct an Administrative and Service Delivery Review

NEWMARKET, Ontario, October 1, 2019 – The Town of Newmarket is one of 39 municipalities to receive a grant ($172,000) from the Province of Ontario’s Audit and Accountability Fund to conduct an Administrative and Service Delivery Review.
 
As a result of this funding, Newmarket is launching its REV it up (Revenue, Efficiencies and Value Add) campaign, a review of the municipality’s internal administrative and service delivery. The Town's goal is to improve its operational efficiency and effectiveness so that it can better support staff, improve services for Newmarket families and businesses, and enable the Town to better support its community
 
The Province of Ontario’s Audit and Accountability Fund was established to assist school boards and municipalities in conducting a focused review on current programs and services to find efficiencies and improve service delivery.
 
“We are pleased to receive this funding from the Province of Ontario to conduct our REV It Up campaign,” says Mayor John Taylor. “Council is always looking for ways to find efficiencies every year as noted in Council’s Strategic Priority of Long-term Financial Sustainability. REV it Up will allow us to engage staff and our stakeholders to find new ways to save, while providing even better services to our community.”
 
REV it Up will be undertaken by the Town’s consultant StrategyCorp. All work pertaining to the review must be completed and submitted to the province of Ontario by the end of the year. This review will not result in any job loss or reduction in levels of service for our residents. At the end of the review, the findings will provide the Town with recommendations on how to deliver long-term sustainable savings and incorporate efficiencies, while maintaining and/or improving service levels.
 
Residents can also take part in REV it up by participating in our 2020 Budget Engagement Process by playing our 2020 Budget Game: How do you want to see your tax dollars invested? and to provide any feedback on the budget process online at HeyNewmarket.ca
