Algonquin Highlands may not have a Reeve after July’s council meeting.

Carol Moffatt and council support the decision to change her title from Reeve to Mayor.

Moffatt says the term Reeve is outdated and some younger generations feel a Reeve is more of a junior mayor.

Moffatt also mentioned when she attends municipal and county conferences, people refer to her as mayor.

Moffatt pointed out that reeves and mayors have the exact some function under Ontario’s municipal act.

There is no cost to change the title.
