Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie is focusing on regional transit, economic development, and diversity and inclusion in 2016.
“I am proud of what has been accomplished,” said Crombie.
“I am mindful that we have only just begun and that there still remains much more work to be done – this is my resolution for the year ahead.”
Crombie released a statement Friday, saying she’s committed to securing full funding from the Wynne government for the new Hurontario LRT.
Operating costs for light rail are up in the air, although the province earmarked $1.6 billion for the project last year before Brampton council rejected the LRT line.
Crombie is also looking ahead to August, when the city is hosting the Ontario Summer Games.
“2016 already promises to be an exciting year for Mississauga,” Crombie said.

Crombie’s challenges this year include affordable housing, an aging population, and transit needs aside from the Hurontario LRT.
Residents are invited to meet and greet Crombie and members of council at the Civic Centre Sunday afternoon.
The annual Mayor’s New Year’s Levee is held between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., with the ‘meet and greet’ ending at 3:15 p.m.
