A public meeting is set for Wednesday, August 17th for those who might want to learn more about municipal politics. The Kapuskasing Civic Centre Auditorium is hosting the event at 6:30 pm. Clerk Chantal Guillemette says Ministry of Municipal Affairs will be available to talk more about the various roles of councillors, mayors and town staff.
“And they’re going to go and dig a bit deeper into what to expect or what are the council and staff relations,” she said. “What’s staff role in the municipality? What’s council’s role in the municipality? And just go through high level the municipal act.”
Guillemette says she’s invited municipal staff members from across the region to participate.
“From Hearst to Smooth Rock Falls, we will hopefully have a clerk or a CAO” she said. “They’ll be there to answer specific questions more about policies and procedures for those municipalities.”
