New CAO soon
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.”
