Fight brewing at Regional Council
The hiring of a new Chief Administrative Officer for the Region at the heart of a fight brewing at Regional Council.
There was a meeting set to vote on hiring a new CAO Thursday with a recommendation put forward by the selection committee, headed by Regional Chair Gary Burroughs.
However, the meeting was cancelled at the last moment because Burroughs says there was a delay in getting critical documents to councillors.
Councillor Alan Caslin tells CKTB's Tom McConnell he suspects the Chair didn't have the votes he was looking for in hiring a new CAO and called the meeting off.
Caslin says they are suffering from a lack of direction and need sweeping changes; with the organization completely dysfunctional at the taxpayers expense.
