Mulgrave starts search for CAO
By Lois Ann Dort
MULGRAVE – This week Mulgrave will start the search for a new Chief Administrative Officer (CAO). At Monday night's regular council meeting, councillors were informed that advertisements for the position will go out next week. The term for the position is one year. Mayor Lorne MacDonald said with the town's current situation and future under review they don't want to give any potential applicants false hope that the position could be long term. “We don't know what the future brings.”
Like most municipalities, winter weather has caused some headaches. MacDonald said the streets in Mulgrave were in good shape although there are areas where ice is still a problem. He blames the thaw-freeze cycle that has been an almost weekly occurrence this winter. The weather continues to delay work on the water treatment plant power poles and the waste water pumping station.
In other business, Mulgrave citizens have been notified, in a recent town newsletter, of public consultation meetings on the future of the town. The meetings are tentatively scheduled for the end of April/beginning of May. Dates will be confirmed at a later date.
