Message From The Mayor
Welcome to the Municipality of Grey Highlands on the web. I am delighted that you have opened this doorway to our municipality. I cordially invite you in and encourage you to get to know us better.
The Municipality of Grey Highlands was created in 2001 by the amalgamation of the former villages of Flesherton and Markdale, and the Townships of Artemesia Euphrasia and Osprey. As we approach our tenth anniversary as an amalgamated Municipality we have much to be proud of and exciting opportunities ahead.
Our goals are to provide good government, preserve our identity and way of life, and increase opportunities for individual and community enhancement in an atmosphere of health, safety and prosperity.
This Council has a focus on good financial management and preserving our natural environment. The cornerstone of our success is productive relationships and partnerships with our citizens, the character and soul of our community. Our Council is committed to open dialogue and transparency in our operations and this website will be another tool to disseminate information and ideas to the public.
Our business community is made up of individuals who have blended traditional values with a global perspective. Together we have built a creative rural economy which is well positioned to offer services locally, nation-wide and to the world.
We share our community with visitors from near and far. They come to experience our heritage, our hospitality and culture and outdoor activities.
Please enjoy our website and our community. Whether you are visiting or live here, you will find that there is nowhere quite like Grey Highlands.
Mayor Paul McQueen
