Being in their 2nd term, that group of councillors has no intention of heeding the new CAO. They know it all now despite having Mr Garbe baby-sit for them when they were first elected.

I'm still surprised, after 9 years of this blog that readers have still not understood circumstances
of replacement of various directors in the town's administration with the Mormac election.
It was never intended for council to receive sound professional advice. Credentials, therefore, did not signify. In fact, less qualified, better suited.
With each replacement, the strategy became more pronounced. Decisions henceforth were contrived exactly as directed by the dreadful duo.
The town did not thrive. Bad things happened.
The list is endless.
Not least, two Councils without guidance or experience of even a hint of competent management of town business.
The task of the new Chief Administrive Officer is particularly difficult.
Departure of the previous was start of an exodus.
Manager of Communications ...Town Solicitor/ Director of Corporate Services...Manager of Human Resources and the latest we hear, Municipal Clerk.
If he's good at the job, the challenge will not faze the new CAO.
Changes required cannot be subtly accomplished.
Council can't be changed but if well-served ,it can be improved.
