I had to leave council about 75 minutes before the meeting ended Monday night to make my deadline, but councillors passed a couple of interesting special resolutions after I was gone which I'm attempting to explore today.
One expressed confidence in the leadership of CAO Ann Pappert "and the actions taken by the CAO with respect to the matters raised by individual members of Council in the Guelph Mercury on April 21, 2012."
That would be this article, which councillors also voted to have their new integrity commissioner, Robert Swayze, reviewed and offer comment upon. (The reason for that motion, and what it might accomplish, remain a mystery to me even after interviewing Coun. June Hofland, who made the motion)
The other special resolution directs the mayor and CAO to hold a special meeting of council "to discuss the changing culture of Council and Administration relations."
