Council studies salary cuts
MACKEY (Special) — Members of Head, Clara and Maria Township council are being asked to consider reducing their stipends as a step toward reducing the budget or at least holding the line.
Members now get $12 for each regular meeting and $5 for each special meeting. A decision on the proposal will be taken next month.
The first council meeting of the year voted to apply for the maximum of $10,000 for normal expenditures for township road work. Last year $9,193 was spent on road work.
Reeve Loretta Boissonneault, the only member of the 1969 council who has held office here recently, will be the welfare administrator — only three people are on relief in the town¬ships at present.
Council agreed to call for applications for the combined jobs of bylaw enforcement officer, dogcatcher and building inspector in the four areas of Deux Rivieres, Bissetts, Stonecliffe, and Mackey.
Community centre board appointments are: Charles Delahunt, chairman and Vickie Jennings, Mary Ellen Boudreau, Elmer Panke, Elmer Donnelly, Ralph Turcotte, Donald Francoeur, Mary Sennett, and Ken Wilson directors.
