North Hatley DG honoured
Leonard Castagner, who has been the Director General of North Hatley since 2005, was one of four Director Generals from around the province who were honoured at the 57th annual congress of the Association des directeurs generaux des municipalites du Quebec (ADGMQ) for twenty-five years of municipal service. An engineer by training, he has worked as the director of technical services and public works for the City of SaintAntoine, and as DG and secretary-treasurer of the City of Labelle and Brownsburg-Chatham before coming to North Hatley. Mr. Castagner received a blown glass piece of art, created by Giuseppe Benedetto, of a killer whale. Known for its combative character, spirit of cooperation and intelligence, the animal’s traits characterize those of a Director General.
