APPOINTMENT OF JOHN GRANT AS MAYOR

Today Council reconsidered it's decision to hold a by-election for the mayoral seat. Council has decided to appoint an individual. That individual would be former Brock Mayor John Grant if he is eligible and accepts.The decision to change from by-election to appointment was not easy for any member of Council. However, running an election is a very important matter and doing it right requires a very specific skillset and amount of staff time. With our Clerk leaving very shortly  it was decided that doing so may not be wise due to a lack of in-house skills to run a municipal election. The last thing anyone wants is an election that does not go well and may be fraught with problems and errors.
Therefore, with a little over a year remaining Council voted unanimously to appoint. Some procedural issues must be done but it could be that Mr. Grant will be sworn in as mayor by some time next week.


While I would have liked to at least had a system whereby eligible nominees would apply and go through an interview process with Council I fully accept the limitations again that our staffing issue presents. Our Clerk will be leaving soon and there are many issues which she needs to address so that things may continue to run as smoothly as possible. Adding even a nomination process would consume much of The Clerk's very limited time left with the municipality.


I hope all residents can understand this situation as we continue to attempt to move forward with the business of The Township and that of Council.
