Media Release
New Management Structure for Lanark Highlands Township

Posted on March 24, 2017

On Monday, March 20th, 2017, at a special meeting, Council reached a decision that means taking a different direction in terms of the management structure for the municipality. A new model is being implemented, that will replace the current position of CAO/Clerk with a Clerk/Administrator which aligns the Township with some neighboring municipalities. All of Council felt that this modest change in the management structure is in the best long-term interest of the municipality and we would like to thank Mr. Goulet for his efforts on the Township’s behalf.

Stacey Blair, who has worked with the Township since 2013 in the capacity as the Planning Administrator/Deputy Clerk, has accepted this opportunity while the Township assesses this new model over the coming year. Amanda Noel, an employee of Lanark County and a resident of the Township, has agreed to take an assignment to back-fill for Ms. Blair. On behalf of Council and Staff, I would like to welcome Ms. Noel who brings a wealth of planning and clerk experience to the Township.

I am confident that this change will improve Council’s ability to move forward with our priorities and in achieving our objectives.

Mayor, Brian Stewart
