Coronation town council went into a closed session to discuss the pressing matter of staffing shortage.
This comes after COVID-19 infected the majority of staffers including public works.
Council went into this session on Sat. Jan. 29 to be proactive with their planning.
Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Quinton Flint shared with the ECA Review that council passed a motion to give administration permission to hire snow removal contractors as required.
This comes after Coronation staff were down to only having one person working as the rest were away because of COVID-19 but normal numbers have been restored as of Wed. Feb. 2.
There was an emphasis to use local contractors as much as possible.
