Council is the boss

Section: 
Letter

I do not agree that the CAO or Water Waste Supervisor have so much say as council is their boss.

It would have been much cheaper for the municipality to have found and repaired the water meter that was causing the issue, instead of passing the buck because the bylaw states that the property owner must find the water meter.

As a retired municipal employee, I was always was under the impression that the council was the big boss; not the CAO, as he was hired by the council, as I was back in 1980.

I do not agree that councillor Gordon Campbell should be brought up on the carpet for doing his job as councillor and working for the taxpayers.

Who elected the council? It was certainly not the CAO.

The CAO should have to answer to the council, not the other way around.
