New treasurer

publisher Apr 26, 2018 - 12:26pm

Kimberly Champigny is the new Treasurer and Director of Finance for the Township of North Glengarry.

She will be assuming responsibility of her new position in a few weeks, after relocating to the region from Red Deer, Alberta, where she had been working as the Administrative and Accounting Supervisor for the City of Red Deer Public Works Department.

Her appointment is the latest in a series of changes at town hall.

Over the last few months, tax collector Sandra Cameron and treasurer Annie Levac have been dismissed and CAO Daniel Gagnon resigned to return to Elliott Lake. Sarah Huskinson who was appointed treasurer was later named CAO.

With more than 15 years of experience working within municipal government, Ms. Champigny is well-versed in municipal government practices, regulations and strategic planning, the township says.

Her demonstrated skills in accounting, tax administration, policy creation and her understanding of the Municipal Government Act made her stand out as a candidate for this position.

Across the country Thursday, people showed up to work and school decked out in jerseys and sharing the message that we are all one team and that we all feel this loss.
