The Con­cep­tion Bay North in­stalled its new ex­ec­u­tive.

At the coun­cil’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Oct. 30 in Clarke’s Beach, Cupids coun­cil­lor Doug Furey was named the chair­man of the ex­ec­u­tive.

He will be fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of Car­bon­ear Deputy Mayor Ge­orge Butt, who pre­vi­ously served as chair­man.

Vic­to­ria coun­cil­lor Frank An­tle was named vicechair, while new Clarke’s Beach coun­cil­lor Crys­tal Brett will serve as trea­surer.

Clarke’s Beach town clerk Joan Wilcox will serve as sec­re­tary for the joint coun­cil.

The CBN joint coun­cil takes in town coun­cils from Bri­gus to Vic­to­ria. The coun­cil is de­signed to tackle is­sues at the re­gional level.

Past is­sues on the agenda have been waste col­lec­tion, wa­ter is­sues, in­creased po­lice pres­ence and lur­ing ad­di­tional med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als to the re­gion.

The coun­cil also looked at ad­dress­ing the re­gion­al­iza­tion of es­sen­tial ser­vices. Things such as fire pro­tec­tion and first re­spon­ders have been on the agenda in re­cent months. Of­ten, pro­fes­sion­als in th­ese fields would ad­dress at­tend­ing mem­bers at meet­ings.

The group meets on the last Thurs­day of ev­ery month and lo­ca­tions are ro­tated around to the var­i­ous mu­nic­i­pal build­ings in the re­gion.
