Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Township of Central Frontenac Councillor William Snyder is the latest recipient of a provincial long-standing service award.

Snyder, along with six other municipally elected officials from eastern Ontario, was honoured for 25 years of service at the annual Ontario East Municipal Conference held recently in Kingston.

Long-standing service awards are given to municipally elected officials with at least 25 years of service. The program was introduced by the Ontario government in 2004. As of 2006, those with 50 years of service are also recognized.

Snyder has served on numerous committees in the last 25 years. He takes special pride in his involvement in a number of local improvement projects, most especially his role in the former Hinchinbrooke Township's first Official Plan.
