Township cancels pair of meetings

Spall council diminished in numbers; waiting for new CAO to arrive

A lack of bodies and the awaited arrival of its new administrator have forced the Township of Spallumcheen to readjust its regular council meeting schedule.

Regular meetings scheduled for Monday and for April 3 have been cancelled.

“The mayor (Janice Brown) is on holidays, (Coun.) Christine Fraser is on holidays and (Coun.) Christine LeMaire is still away,” said Coun. Joe Van Tienhoven. “And our new CAO doesn’t start until next Monday (March 27).”

Doug Allin is replacing Corey Paiement as chief administrative officer. Allin comes to the township from the City of Grand Forks.

Van Tienhoven said township business will not get overlooked.

“We’ve got a few things on the go but nothing pressing,” he said. “We had a special meeting last Monday (March 13) to deal with some land issues and we pushed those through. There’s nothing else really outstanding.

“Plus our new CAO needs a bit of time to get up to speed on everything.”

The next regularly scheduled meeting for township council is slated for Tuesday, April 18, held one day later than usual due to the Easter holiday.
