the COUNCIL SIZE for the TOWN OF WINDSOR & its MUNICIPAL BOUNDARIES OF POLLING DISTRICTS
COUNCIL SIZE - Currently Windsor Council consists of one (1) Mayor and four (4) Councillors elected at large by 2,350 eligible voters. (This current council size started in 1996; before then, there was one mayor and six councillors).
BOUNDARIES & POLLING DISTRICTS - Windsor Council is elected at large and is 9.06 square kilometres, so there is currently no need to review boundaries of polling districts.

Windsor Photo Challenge
Full Contest Rules...
Are you a professional, amateur or hobbyist photographer that loves to capture “those moments” on film (or should I say, digitally)? Are you willing to share those captured moments with the Town of Windsor and the rest of the world? YOU ARE?! Well, here’s what we have happenin’...
We are looking for 12 amazing photos that represent Windsor. Actually, the more photos the better but there are only prizes for 12.
The Town of Windsor invites you to enter our Windsor Photo Challenge. Snapshots of our lake, waterfront, festivities, events, recreational moments, scenery, museums and historical properties, activities, greenery, you name it...we want to see it & use it. They can be past or present photos.
To make it fair, professional photos will only be judged against other professional photos...hobbyists/amateur photos against other hobbyist/amateur photos.
Okay, okay, okay...so, what do you get? What do we get?
It’s really simple. There will be the top six photos from the professional category and top six from the amateur/hobbyist category. ALL 12 prizes are the same – how cool is that?! Each will be awarded a $100 gift certificate to a local, Windsor-merchant of your choice (that’s even more awesome, right)?!
So, now what do we (the Town of Windsor) get?
Well, we get the rights to use your photos on our website, postcards, brochures, etc. But no worries, of course all the credit goes to you. We will ensure the photos include your name as the photographer (i.e. “photographed by...”). The Town would also use any remaining photos (that were not in the Top 12); but again, credit will go to YOU!
Excited? We are! Start focusing & capturing our town; your community today!
