Wawa Council Makes A Few Major Appointments

Wawa has a new municipal clerk - but it's a familiar face.

During last night's regular meeting, Council passed a by-law appointing a clerk and issuer of marriage licences: Cathy Cyr, the longtime deputy clerk.

Council did not discuss Cyr's promotion during the meeting and her name was not included in the portion of the by-law read out loud.

Cyr's also been appointed "acting treasurer" for the period of January 23rd to March 4th, when outgoing Wawa Economic Development Corporation CEO Maury O'Neill will officially start as the municipal CAO/Treasurer.

Council's also made another key appointment: the community representative on the local Police Services Board.

Chris Buckell will hold the role, replacing Jayne Griffith, who stepped down in October.

Former councillor Mike Abbott is chair of the board - serving as the provincial government's appointee - while new Councillor Robert Reece is Council's representative on the board.
