The Federation of PEI Municipalities (FPEIM) wishes to thank seven outgoing board members for their service and dedication to Island municipalities.
Changes to municipal councils following the November municipal elections also create changes in the FPEIM board, which includes mayors and councillors from across the province.
“Our board members provide vital advice on how we can support municipalities in serving their residents and advocate for policies that help municipalities build their communities,” said President Bruce MacDougall. “We appreciate the time and insight our board members have shared.”
MacDougall said the dedication of board members has been particularly appreciated during a difficult few years for Islanders. “In the last three years, Islanders have dealt with the effects of post-tropical storms Dorian and Fiona, COVID-19, housing shortages, and economic and social problems. Municipal leaders, like our board members, have been key to responding to all of these issues.”
