Cobourg council this week finalized the CAO Performance Evaluation Committee that will perform an annual review on the work of CAO Tracey Vaughan.
The policy came up at Monday’s committee-of-the-whole meeting setting out membership on the committee as Mayor Lucas Cleveland, Deputy Mayor Nicole Beatty and one other member of council.
Beatty asked when the third member of the committee would be named, and Director of Legislative Services Brent Larmer allowed that this could be done immediately if councillors were willing.
Three councillors immediately put their names forward for the position – Randy Barber, Brian Darling and Adam Bureau.
Rather than decide the matter with some kind of election process, Cleveland floated the idea that the position be filled by each one, in turn, on an annual rotating basis for the three remaining years of this council term.
The motion was passed that the third seat on this committee be held by Barber in 2024, by Darling in 2025 and by Bureau in 2026.
