The County of Simcoe held its first virtual council meeting on April 14, using ZOOM – and after a few technical glitches, dealt with issues that included the steps being taken by the county to address the COVID-19 emergency.

County councillors delegated authority to senior staff to disburse a total of $4 million in emergency funding, as the need arises – $2.44 million from the Provincial Social Services Relief Fund, and over $1.6 million in new federal funding, through the Reaching Home program.
