Trevor Callbeck – Deputy Mayor Linkletter

This was just a brief information meeting.

Albert opened the meeting and gave the floor to Jason Woodbury. Jason explained that with the MGA the deadline for office space for each municipality was December 2022. Each municipality would have to have 20 hrs. open to the public. Since small municipalities that have 200-300 people the municipality can just not afford it. So, it was proposed that the office be shared out of Miscouche and the residents of Linkletter and St Nicholas would call, and Michelle would either help them or direct them to the website of the municipalities to get the information they are looking for. Each Municipality is looking to see what this would cost. Allan proposed that it would be on a trial basis for 3 months to collect data to see how much time it effects Michelle work, and then all the municipalities would come back to the table to negotiate a price that would be fair. Albert agreed that this would be the easiest way to do it. So, this will start on March 1, 2022, and go for 3 months. All the municipalities agreed. Since Michelle is the CAO for Linkletter and Miscouche, St Nicholas will need to draw a shared service agreement.

Albert thanked everyone for coming

Meeting adjourned.
