New CAO soon

The Glengarry News - - News - BY SCOTT CARMICHAEL News Staff

South Glen­garry coun­cil will soon be fill­ing the mu­nic­i­pal chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer’s seat that’s been va­cant for more than six months.

Ac­cord­ing to the min­utes from the town­ship’s trate­gic plan­ning talks in Mor­ris­burg, the “role of the CAO” was among the top­ics ex­plored on the sec­ond day of the meet­ings. “Coun­cil had a gen­eral dis­cus­sion as to what role they would like the CAO to ful­fill in the fu­ture and dis­cussed next steps for the role,” town­ship clerk Kelli Cam­peau told The

News re­cently. “They will be re­view­ing the job de­scrip­tion in the near fu­ture be­fore pro­ceed­ing with post­ing the po­si­tion and go­ing through a hir­ing process.”

The town­ship has been with­out a chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer since Bryan Brown parted ways with the mu­nic­i­pal­ity this past Jan­uary. Mr. Brown had held the post since June 2014. Sec­tion 229 of the 2001 (On­tario) Mu­nic­i­pal Act es­tab­lishes mu­nic­i­pal author­ity to ap­point a CAO, stat­ing that the ap­pointee “shall be re­spon­si­ble for ex­er­cis­ing gen­eral con­trol and man­age­ment of the af­fairs of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity for the pur­pose of en­sur­ing the ef­fi­cient and ef­fec­tive op­er­a­tion of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, and...shall per­form such other du­ties as are as­signed by the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.”

THE GIFT OF LIFE: As the sign says, area res­i­dents can give the gift of life July 15 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Glen­garry Sports Palace in Alexan­dria.
