SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – An announcement during the City Council meeting by CAO Malcolm White confirmed some information Monday night.
During the 2021-2023 corporate strategic plan presentation, White cautioned the council about what needs to be done when a new council takes over.
“As far as going for 2023 obviously you have a new election, a new municipal election which will occur late in 2022. As you head into 23 as councils aware you will at least have a new mayor,” said White.
“In 2023 you will likely be going through a new CAO selection process. So you will want to get the new council … acclimatized to the governance role.”
He told the council they would definitely want to have a new CAO selected before deciding on a Strategic Plan going forward past 2023.
Other highlights of the plan which was approved by the council include considering the new Firehall, west end water treatment plant upgrades, and welcoming and seeking immigration to the community.
