LANCASTER — Former Upper Canada District School Board superintendent Tim Mills has assumed a new role today: Chief Administrative Officer of the Township of South Glengarry.
He took up the township position Nov. 27 but will be officially appointed by council on Dec. 2, according to a press release issued the municipality last week.
Active in a variety of community organizations throughout Cornwall and SD&G, Mills is a member of committees overseeing fundraising at Beyond 21 and operations at the St. Lawrence River Institute.
South Glengarry Mayor Frank Prevost welcomed the new CAO on behalf of council. “We are confident that his extensive experience leading organizations in the public and non-profit sectors will be a great asset to our municipality,” said Prevost.
Mills is reported to look forward to the “challenge and the many opportunities that lie ahead for the township.
“I am both excited and honoured to assume the role of CAO in … South Glengarry and would like to thank Mayor Prevost and council for the opportunity to serve the township,” he said.
Mills pointed out that a recent survey to constituents — related to the Strategic Plan for 2019-2023 — identified three core strengths of South Glengarry: its community, its location and its people. “These strengths will be the pillars for achieving the strategic priorities and objectives,” he observed.
