Under the Dome

This column reports on council meetings from my personal viewpoint and includes comments the reader may not agree with.

I did not attend the council meeting therefore the column is written from listening to the audiotape posted on the DOL website.

April 4 Special Council Meeting

Council held a Special Council meeting on April 4 that was closed to the public. All Councillors were in attendance plus CAO Ronald Campbell and Judy Rogers of Judy Rogers Consulting Inc.

The meeting was closed to the public, pursuant to section 90(1) (a) and (c) of the Community Charter, for the purpose of considering: (i) personal information about an identifiable individual who holds or is being considered for a position as an officer, employee or agent of the municipality or another position appointed by the municipality; (ii) labour relations or other employee relations.

The meeting minutes did not provide any additional information on discussions or motions made during the meeting.

In November 2017 Council authorized the CAO to enter into an agreement with Judy Rogers Consulting Inc. to undertake the Internal Service Capacity Review for $55,000 plus disbursements and GST. I can assume that Judy Rogers was present during this meeting to present her preliminary or final report on the review. Hopefully, her report will be made public in the near future.
