Fort Macleod Resident Circulating Petition Against Town's C.A.O.

There's a petition making the rounds in Fort Macleod asking Council to consider removing the town's Chief Administrative Officer, David Connauton from his position.

A Fort Macleod resident has started a community-wide petition to try and get the town's CAO removed from his position. Karen Friesen says many residents feel Chief Administrative Officer, David Connauton is not doing his job efficiently and notes there are concerns about overspending and tax increases. She says she hopes to get 10% to 20% of the town's population or around 600 residents to sign the document. Friesen says this petition alone can not remove Connauton from his job, but instead would go to Fort Macleod Town Council to make a decision on. Friesen says the petition needs to be completed within the next 60 days. - Pat Siedlecki
