The Corporation of the Township of South Dundas will officially be renamed the Corporation of the Municipality of South Dundas.
South Dundas council approved the change at the May 21 council meeting.
Since the time of amalgamation in 1998, South Dundas councils have all considered the possibility of officially renaming the township.
Last week the possibility became reality.
It was felt that, with new signs being designed, the municipal office moving to a new home, and a need for all South Dundas stationary to be replaced to reflect the new address, now is the right time to make the change.
The bylaw that will make the name change official will be considered at the next regular meeting of council on June 4, 2013.
The date that the name change takes effect will be reflected in that bylaw.
