ALEXANDRIA – North Glengarry has filled its vacant management position in public works, hiring a director from south-central Ontario.

Tara Clayton will be joining the township on Tuesday, May 4, after working in a similar capacity in the Town of Orangeville.

CAO Sarah Huskinson says Clayton brings a lot of knowledge on bridges, roads, waterworks and waste management to the table.

North Glengarry Mayor Jamie MacDonald adds that her “community minded philosophies and inclusive leadership will be a great benefit to the township as a whole.”

Clayton takes over the vacant position after the municipality parted ways with its previous director, Douglas Sitland, in September. He had been hired in February 2020.

The environmental services manager has been acting public works director since that time.
