Town of Millet

For the time being Millet town council is following a recently approved resolution stating any time the chief administrative officer is out of town and unavailable the assistant CAO will be able to step in and have authority in each of the CAO’s duties.

Councillors voted in favour of the resolution during their Jan. 25 meeting.

However, Coun. Mike Storey does not want the resolution to be the final word on the matter. He is concerned the resolution will not address a situation if both the CAO and assistant CAO are both unavailable.

Storey explained he felt the CAO bylaw should be amended, allowing the CAO to appoint a designated replacement should the need arise.

However, council needed to quickly address a need for the CAO and assistant CAO, and amending a bylaw would not fit the timeline.

The matter can be brought back before council at a later date.
