Staff North Stor­mont coun­cil added four re­serve play­ers to its mu­nic­i­pal staff ros­ter dur­ing last week’s (June 25) reg­u­lar coun­cil meet­ing.

Richard Scheep­ers and Bill Toll were both named live­stock in­ves­ti­ga­tors, re­plac­ing Bill Van Loon, while Marc-An­dré De­coeur and Ja­cob Rheaume were ap­pointed “when re­quired” build­ing in­spec­tors.

Mr. Van Loon, who had been ap­pointed to the po­si­tion in early April, re­signed in midJune.

CAO Craig Calder ex­plained the need for the ad­di­tions.

“We are just try­ing to ex­pand our base. This should pro­vide us with a bit of lat­i­tude and flex­i­bil­ity to en­sure that we can pro­vide con­tin­ued ser­vice,” he said.

Ac­cord­ing to a staff re­port pre­pared for last week’s meet­ing, Todd Bayly was ap­pointed as the “prin­ci­pal tem­po­rary re­place­ment” town­ship build­ing inspector in July 2018 to fill in for cur­rent Chief Build­ing Of­fi­cial An­dré Brisson when the lat­ter is ab­sent.

How­ever, the re­port pointed out that Mr. Bayly “is not avail­able dur­ing the CBO’s up­com­ing sched­uled va­ca­tion.”

GEN­DER RE­VEAL: Friends and fam­ily were told to look out for a big fire truck parked at Is­land Park on Canada Day. They were there to share a much-an­tic­i­pated and joy­ous mo­ment with Ap­ple Hill fire­fighter Chad Chabot and his wife Chelsea. The cou­ple planned to re­veal to them­selves and to the world the gen­der of the baby they’re ex­pect­ing in Novem­ber. A doc­tor-signed sealed let­ter was handed to the truck's pump op­er­a­tor who blasted out a baby-pink jet of wa­ter to loud cheers. This will be daugh­ter num­ber three for the Alexandria cou­ple who are the par­ents of 3-year-old Abigail and Grace who is 2.
