The Mayor and Warden are both political leaders as well as community leaders.  In this crisis, their role is to help guide their community through the crisis and towards economic recovery.  Although the Economic Recovery Plan was developed by PKED as the lead regional economic development agency for the City and County, the Task Force will be led by the Mayor and Warden as representatives of the City and County. PKED will be responsible for the implementation of the plan on behalf of the City and County, with support from and in partnership with leaders from various business support agencies and organizations who regularly work together to support business and industry in Peterborough & the Kawarthas.
