Champlain Township has been conducting its meetings using Zoom technology for several months now. The municipal offices remain closed to the public.

Champlain Township to hire a civil engineering technologist

At its regular November 12 meeting, Champlain Township council approved recommendations from its November 3 committee-of-the-whole meeting, which included the hiring of a civil engineering technologist, who would become part of the Public Works Department.

According to Champlain Township Mayor Normand Riopel, the need for additional support and expertise in the Public Works department has existed for years, with too much responsibility falling onto the shoulders of Public Works Director James McMahon.

McMahon has been authorized to recruit the new staff person, who would be assessing and monitoring roads, municipal buildings and would make recommendations to improve and save the roads, according to the mayor.

“We would have a better handle on all of our assets and have help for our Public Works department at the same time,” Riopel concluded.
