Council Chooses Interim Port Board
Cape Breton regional council named the interim board for the new Port of Sydney Corporation at its meeting last night.
The board will include Mayor Cecil Clarke and Councillors George MacDonald, Clarence Prince, Kevin Saccary and Jim MacLeod.
They’ll serve as a working group until a new board made up of community members is named next year.
However, the interim board wasn’t created without controversy.
Chief Administrative Officer Michael Merritt recommended that the interim board be made up of the mayor, Deputy Mayor George MacDonald and one councillor each from North, Central and East Divisions.
However, councillors Ray Paruch and Eldon MacDonald voted against the recommendation, arguing they should have input on the interim board.
