Name of creator
The Village of Coldwater was incorporated effective 29 January 1908 by Simcoe County By-Law No. 895. Prior to 1908 the community was administered by the Township of Medonte. As an incorporated village, Coldwater had a seat on Simcoe County Council. Effective 1 January 1994, Coldwater, Orillia Township, and Matchedash Township amalgamated to form the Corporation of the Township of Severn. According to the County By-Law separating Coldwater from the Corporation of the Township of Medonte, the title of the separate corporation was to be "The Corporation of the Village of Coldwater." At various times, official documents produced by the village also gave its title as "The Municipal Corporation of the Village of Coldwater," and "The Municipality of the Village of Coldwater." It was known most commonly as "The Village of Coldwater." The village's council was an elected body comprising a reeve and councillors. Officials appointed by council included the clerk-treasurer, caretakers, and members of various municipal boards.
