Come on in. Welcome to our County Community. Our Team of dedicated County Councillors and Staff are very pleased to have this opportunity to show you around. Please join us as we take a virtual tour of our County and showcase our services to the folks in our neighbourhood and beyond.
The County of Lennox & Addington is vibrant with reminders of a rich past: the family names of the earliest pioneers remain, and hundreds of grand Victorian homes and family farmsteads still stand as symbols of an era of hard work and bustling growth, their survival and vitality a testament to the vision of the founders. The County takes pride in building on its strong traditions and good stewardship, while upholding a commitment to progress, and supporting a thriving, progressive and inviting community.
The residents of Lennox & Addington work together, volunteer together, support one another and truly care about their community. County Council is very conscious of its fiscal responsibility and strives to enhance the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of County Government. We are pleased that our refreshed web presence allows us to communicate more effectively with our residents and friends. We look forward to receiving your inquiries and feedback online, as well as by telephone, correspondence and in person. Our new corporate web site enables you to share articles of interest with others; gives you an opportunity to receive regular emails on specific topics; and will allow you to get in touch with us at any time.
In spite of the context of a global economic recession, Council has approved a budget which protects the services which county residents and businesses rely on. We remain committed to providing needed resources for our most vulnerable residents and we continue to allocate resources to protect our investment in public facilities and infrastructure .We are very proud of our state of the art long-term care facility, The John M. Parrott Centre and currently we are constructing a new building to consolidate Social Services staff working in Napanee into one building.
County Council works collaboratively with other government and community agencies not only to create a county community in which our residents and their children can reach their full potential and realize their dreams, but also a community that draws visitors, business, industry, investors and new neighbours – people from other areas of the province, the country and around the world.
