Mayor’s Message

Dear Community,

Since December 2, 2013, your village board has been working diligently to start the comprehensive strategic planning process to move our Village forward.  The Annual Report 2013 includes a vision, mission, sample of the overwhelming number of accomplishments of our departments and multi-year goals.  We need to be clear, that the goals are a framework and may change at any time.

Through departmental leadership and the board committee based system, continued integrity of the process will be natural.  We are very excited to team with our dedicated employees as well as our town board, local businesses, educational institutions, county, state and federal partners working for the best interests of Canton.

The new Village Board Briefs will be highlighted in the St. Lawrence Plaindealer communicating to the public what we, your elected officials, are working on to instill transparency, community engagement and public trust.  We welcome feedback, ideas and concerns at all times because we work for the taxpayers and are focused on the people.


Mary Ann Ashley
