Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYD­NEY — An in-cam­era meet­ing of Cape Bre­ton re­gional mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil this week was ex­pected to up­date coun­cil­lors on the next steps for search­ing for a new chief ad­min­is­tra­tive officer as well as the sta­tus of con­tracts for in­side and out­side work­ers. Speak­ing to re­porters prior to the meet­ing, Clarke said no rec­om­men­da­tions were due to come out of the closed-door meet­ing. “These are only brief­ings, there are no de­ci­sions be­ing ren­dered,” he said.

There is also an on­go­ing re­view of the pen­sion sys­tem, as the CBRM con­sid­ers mov­ing into the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment pen­sion plan, for which coun­cil­lors were also ex­pected to re­ceive an up­date. The five-year con­tracts for in­side and out­side work­ers are due to ex­pire this fall, Clarke said.

While Michael Mer­ritt of­fi­cially gave the three months no­tice of his of­fi­cial June 30 de­par­ture as CAO, as re­quired by his con­tract — with va­ca­tion cred­its owed, he left last month. He was hired in July 2014, and started in the po­si­tion that Oc­to­ber.
