Meaning of Life?
You will hear us talk about life a lot in the Town, that is because we put life into everything we do. We are committed to putting life into our community every day.
In 2010 as part of the Town's Plan for the Future and to ensure that we are able to deliver on projects, there was a restructure and the creation of life programs. Our structure and outlook might be a little unconventional and quirky but so is our Town.
