“Sanitary servicing clears the way for unprecedented growth in King City. It took over 150 years for this village to reach a population of 5,000; now, with sanitary servicing, we will see the doubling of population within 6-8 years. This will have a very real impact not only on King City, but on Snowball, Kettleby the and surrounding rural areas. We need to control growth as best as we can. I have the relevant knowledge and the experience to help guide our municipality through the oncoming development wave”.

My name is Cleve Mortelliti and I am the Councillor for Ward 1 in the Township of King, Ontario – Canada. I love this Township. King City has been my home since 1972. From 2004 to 2006 I had the privilege to work as an Engineering Administrator for the Township of King. But my overriding desire to make a real difference and to have a more positive, impactful influence on the shape and form of the development wave that is coming to King, led me to leave my employment with the Township and declare my candidacy for Councillor of Ward 1 (King City, Snowball, Kettleby). At approximately 10:00pm on November 13th, 2006 I was truly thrilled to learn that the residents and ratepayers of Ward 1 had bestowed their trust in me to serve as their councillor for the next 4 years . In the successive 2010, and 2014 elections I was re-elected by acclamation. It remains my honour and privilege to serve King.
