A new council is sworn in. The Town of Arnprior held its Inaugural Council Meeting at the Nick Smith Centre last night. Experience ranges from two newcomers through to veteran Ted Stike, who is entering his fifth term at the table. Former Reeve Walter Stack takes over as Mayor, and was presented with the Chain of Office by retiring Mayor David Reid. Stack is very much looking forward to the challenges ahead.
The new Mayor says Arnprior may well have to bite the bullet with an austerity government now in office at Queen’s Park. Dan Lynch takes Stack’s place as Reeve, or what is now known as County Councillor, and is the first elected official to hold the post in Renfrew County history.
