Experience. Renfrew’s new council is officially sworn in and brings with it decades of combined experience. Council’s inaugural meeting last night, before a packed house, saw the return of incumbent councillors and former Mayer Sandi Heins taking outgoing Councillor Kate Windle’s chair. Mayor Don Eady says he’s looking forward to working with council over the next four years.
Sandi Heins is a vocal supporter of a pool and now that she’s sworn in, she says one of her first tasks is to find out where things stand with the second ice pad.
As for the pool, Heins says she has to see the numbers to ensure it’s feasible and not a burden on tax payers. The voting public showed their confidence in Eady and fellow incumbents Tom Sidney, Mike Coulas, Arlene Jamieson and Andrew Evans by re-electing them to their council seats. Reeve Peter Emon was acclaimed. Their first official meeting as a council is December 11 where it’s believed they’ll make a decision on a new Fire Chief.
