Adjala Tosorontio to hold its first meeting Friday to deal
with CAO's resignation
Adjala-Tosorontio council will meet for the first time this term since
being sworn into office yesterday morning to deal with last
week's sudden resignation of Township CAO Eric Wargel which was
effective Dec. 1.
Mr. Wargel was appointed CAO in May 2010 and a Township employee since
New mayor Floyd Pinto, who was a councillor last term, and the CAO were
often at odds including Mr. Pinto questioning the monthly mileage expenses
submitted by the CAO for daily travel to and from the Administration
Centre in Adjala and his home. He suggested the monthly claims should
have been the same @ 54 cents per km. But some payments ranged between
$500 and $700, alleging the claims included personal use of the vehicle.
Friday's special meeting which begins at 9 am, includes an in camera
"The council will have to decide on how to move forward with the CAO
position," Mr. Pinto told Free Press Online this morning via email.
The meeting will also include deputations to update the new councillors
on employee compensation matters which also were sources of friction
last term. They include
Susy Nicols, Mosey & Mosey – Benefits Update;
Heather Hill, Noble Insurance – Liability Insurance Update; and
Issac Tang and James Fu, Borden Ladner Gervais – Post Retirement
"It is only to update council on these matters as we have many new
members of council."
