Guiding Principles for Transition Committee
The following guiding principles were developed at a joint council workshop between the Town of Windsor and the Municipality on October 29th, 2018. The intent of these Guiding Principles is to provide our Transition Committee with broad values to consider when making decisions concerning the consolidation of the two communities.
We are doing our best to answer all of your questions around the consolidation. This is what we've heard from you so far.
What is the difference between the term consolidation and amalgamation?
There is no difference. They mean the same thing.
What is the difference between consolidation and dissolution?
Through a dissolution, a municipal unit surrenders its charter and ceases to exist. The assets of the dissolving unit are then absorbed into a neighbouring municipal unit that is willing to accept them.
Through consolidation, both municipal units surrender their charters and cease to exist. The assets of both of those units are then consolidated into a new municipal unit.
