Mississippi Mills holds quarterly CPAC meetings. They take place on the first Tuesday of March, June, September, and December. Meetings start at 9:30 a.m. in the Council Chambers, unless otherwise indicated.

CPAC meetings are open to the public. To learn more about CPAC or to take part in a meeting please contact the Municipality.

The Community Plan for Safety and Well-being

Community Safety and Well-being (CSWB) plans address the unique safety needs of communities. It is provincial requirement for every regional municipality to have a CSWB plan in place. The plan identifies local priorities and evidence based, sustainable solutions. The goal is to ensure those in need of help get the right response, at the right time, and by the right service provider.

The Community Plan for Safety and Well-being for Lanark County and Smiths Falls has been in place since 2018. A variety of local groups from police, to social services, to health care collaborated on the plan.

Read the Community Plan for Safety and Well-being.
