City council decided to take a hands off approach in the hiring a new director of Human Resources and Corporate Safety.
The majority of council voted against a motion that would have a member of council sitting on the recruitment committee alongside city manager Tim Commisso. Councillors Rebecca Johnson, Trevor Giertuga and Joe Virdiramo voted in favour of the motion.
Giertuga said it’s important to have someone on the recruitment committee because the director would be the person councillors would approach if they have any concerns with Commisso.
Coun. Andrew Foulds disagreed and said it would have been a real mistake to mix administration with politics.
“We should not let politics get involved,” Foulds said.
“I sit here as a councillor to make political decisions. It’s a bad move to combine administration with council. It’s not our role to hire senior managers.”
Mayor Keith Hobbs shared Foulds opinions and said it almost appeared as if council was micromanaging.
