MIDDLESEX COUNTY on May 12, 2022 the Municipality of Thames Centre hosted the 2022 Middlesex Municipal Day at the new Thorndale Lions Community Centre. The event saw over 90 delegates from the County of Middlesex, Local Municipalities, the Middlesex-London Health Unit, the Middlesex County Library Board, local Conservation Authorities, and various community partners.
At the event, delegates heard from leading Thames Centre businesses including Algonquin Bridge, Ideal Tile / ADS Pipe, and Armatec Survivability. Innovation, modernization and growth were some of the key messages received. Representatives from the Ontario Federation of Agriculture were also in attendance to offer some “Food for Thought” on issues facing Ontario’s agricultural industry.
The meeting closed with a State of the Union address from Middlesex County Warden Alison Warwick who highlighted some of the important work undertaken by the County over the past two and a half years. Highlights included the Middlesex-London Paramedic Service’s Mobile COVID-19 Vaccine Program; the adoption of the Middlesex County Strategic Plan; and plans for the decentralization of County Services. Warden Warwick also addressed the sale of the Middlesex County Administration Building in 2019 and the sale of vacant lands near Strathmere Lodge in 2021. Proceeds from these sales, totaling approximately $36 million dollars, helped to stabilize Middlesex County’s tax rate in 2022 and will continue to help fund pandemic relief and post pandemic recovery programs well into the future.
