Town decision to revoke DBA Chair’s appointment causing a stir

A decision by Parry Sound Council is coming under fire.  In a special meeting of council on March 25th, councillors met in closed session to discuss matters pertaining to an identifiable individual and a resolution from those talks came into open session.  The resolution was for the appointment of Lis McWalter to the Downtown Business Association Board be revoked, effectively immediately.  In a recorded vote, Councillors Paul Borneman, Bonnie Keith, and Dave Williams voted against the resolution while Councillors Brad Horne, Keith Saulnier, and Dan McCauley voted in favour of it.  Mayor Jamie McGarvey broke the tie by voting in favour of the resolution.  Lis McWalter wrote in an email to this station that there is much that the DBA still has to do to execute on the Revitalization Plan and believes that Council’s decision has seriously derailed its momentum.  McWalter says she feels personally embarrassed by the decision and is looking forward to an explanation from council.  Council will be delivering a press release this morning at the Town office and we’ll have the details later today.
