The next meeting of Town Council is June 24th, at 7:00 pm at Town Hall.
All meetings of Council are open to the public. Meeting minutes and agendas can be found on the Kentville website. Visit the minutes and agendas page here. Meetings are also live streamed on the Town of Kentville's Facebook page, and those videos are also available on the website the day after the meeting.
A reminder about Council and CAC meetings, and some pointers for groups and organizations:
If you are presenting to Town Council, your meeting package materials are due 5 days prior to the meeting at which you are presenting. Council typically meets on a Monday, so that means your deadline for materials to be submitted to the Executive Assistant is the Wednesday before the meeting, at noon.
Presentations to Council are preferred at CAC meetings vs. Council Meetings. CAC meetings are on the 2nd Monday of the month.
If your group is seeking a grant from Town Council, please review the "Grants to Organizations" policy, including timelines, found HERE.
A Governance Minute: Financial Condition Indicators (FCIs) Part 1 of 3
The Financial Condition Indicators (FCIs) were developed in collaboration with both the Nova Scotia Federation of Municipalities (NSFM) and AMANS. Thirteen indicators are examined to provide a general picture of municipal financial condition. While the Indicators cannot provide a comprehensive assessment of financial condition, they can provide indication of strengths, trends and risk areas where a municipality should focus. The municipality’s general financial condition is graphically represented by a ‘House’ format.
Roof – The key performance indicators are located at the roof or top of the house. Four indicators measure the achievement of the overall objectives for assessing financial health.
Structure – Indicators located in the middle are key elements that impact the overall financial condition objectives (leading measures).
Base – The indicators located on the bottom (base) are indicators that although the municipality may not have a direct control over all elements for the indicator, the indicator can have a significant impact on the financial health of the municipality.
