This just in, or going out to city hall, or something. I’m a bit surprised. I thought Marg WAS the city clerk and doing a good job.

Subject: Process for Permanent Appointment of City Clerk
Dear Council Members and Memers of the CMT, As most of you are aware, the position of City Clerk/Chief Election Officer has been vacant since April, 2008.
Marg Coulson, Deputy City Clerk, was asked to act in the position for approximately one year to ensure continuity in the Chief Election Officer role throughout the 2008 civic elections, at which time the position was to be put to a competition.
We are a bit behind the original schedule however we will commence the competition process with advertising of the position this weekend.
I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to Marg for her willingness to perform the extended acting assignment. She has been an important resource for both me and our new councillors over the last 10 months.
I look forward to finalizing a permanent appointment to this key position in the City. Thank you.
