Some afternoon decisions arose from yesterday’s Algonquin Highlands council meeting that have some changes being made. The 2015 budget was approved after the final draft came forward. A few staffing changes were also made when councilors agreed to combine the Clerk and CAO position, which current CAO Angie Bird will take on.

As the previous Clerk was also the Planning Administrator, the Township will now employ a full time Planner. Reeve Carol Moffatt says they’ll start recruitment immediately.
