Deputy Mayor of Windsor? Do you support Councillor Alan Halberstadt’s idea for a ‘deputy’ Mayor position?

Councillor Alan Halberstadt at the end of Mondays night’s city council meeting, asked administration to prepare a report on how council would go about creating the permanent position of deputy mayor.  One option put on the table was the councillor that gets the highest percent of votes in October’s election would also assume the position of deputy mayor, but he asked administration to look at several ways this could be decided.

The current system in place is a rotation schedule for all 10 councillors.  Each member of council gets a one month term as acting mayor in the case that the Mayor is unable to attend a council meeting or other city business.

One of the main reasons behind Councillor Halberstad’s question is so that two people will set the weekly council agenda, as it stands today the agenda is only set by the Mayor.

Jo-Anne Gignac asked if this would be a paid position, and the reply was no.  The member of council who is also the deputy mayor would still make the same pay as he or she does as a councillor.

Administration will prepare a report, and then from the information on that report Councillor Halberstadt will then decide if he will make a notice of motion to create this new position within the City of Windsor.  At that point it would then be debated at council.
