Staff While South Glen­garry coun­cil hasn’t ini­ti­ated the process of hir­ing a new chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer yet, mem­bers have slightly tweaked the re­quire­ments for that po­si­tion. Dur­ing the town­ship’s strate­gic plan­ning talks in Mor­ris­burg in late June, coun­cil be­gan dis­cus­sions re­gard­ing the role of the CAO within the gov­er­nance struc­ture of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, agree­ing to take an­other look at the po­si­tion’s job de­scrip­tion at a later date. Fol­low­ing up on the mat­ter dur­ing a brief spe­cial coun­cil meet­ing last Fri­day (July 12), coun­cil came up with a hand­ful of changes. “Based on that dis­cus­sion, we are go­ing to make a few mi­nor re­vi­sions,” town­ship clerk Kelli Cam­peau told on Mon­day, point­ing out that coun­cil feels be­ing bilin­gual, as well as hav­ing “knowl­edge of the lo­cal area” are both key as­sets that will be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion when ap­pli­cants are be­ing in­ter­viewed.
