Remarques d’ouverture – Conseil de ville 7 septembre, 2015

The lazy,hazy days of summer are already behind us although they were not particularly lazy for myself and your Town Manager,Mr.Campbell.

Au dernier Conseil,nous vous avons présenté votre nouveau Trésorier et Directeur des Finances,M.Serge Raymond,qui a  débuté le 31aôut dernier. D’ailleurs,M. Campbell vous fera un rapport sur ses activités à la toute fin de mon rapport.

With the help of RCGT,we reviewed 37 potential candidates for the position of Town Manager. A first triage reduced the number to 6 after which one of the candidates withdrew. Mr.Campbell and I then conducted 90 minute interviews with the remaining candidates. Nous avons réduit ce nombre á deux. Sujet à des tests psychométriques et autres références,votre Conseil s’est prononcé unanimement sur le choix de votre nouveau D.G.,Me. Jean-Pierre Roy.

Résolution (Item 10.1 traité immédiatement)

A few words from Mr. Roy.

Nous avons une autre invité de marque ce soir – Capitaine Ginette Séguin,Section est de la MRC pour la SQ que j’invite à nous addresser quelques mots. Je me suis offert comme interprête en anglais.

You will be getting a reminder in the mail about the Strategic Plan and Vision presentation on Saturday,Sept. 19th right here at the C.C. at 10am. That plan will be presented to Town department managers tomorrow. I urge you to attend “Our Town – Our Future”

We have been very fortunate to have had Duncan Campbell as our interim D.G. His primary assignment was to assist us in finding a permanent Treasurer and D.G. – job well done! Beyond that,he has cleaned up as many files as he could and instilled a new discipline. He will continue to be with us for an undetermined period,ensuring a seamless transition with the new administration,briefing them and Council on his observations during his 5 month tenure to date.

Thank you Duncan! I invite you to comment on the last month of activities.
