Councillor McCann Meeting Report (July 21, 2020)

Parry Sound Public Library
On Wednesday, July 8, 2020 I attended a Parry Sound Public Library Board Meeting, in person to hear a presentation and update on Pay Equity.  Also, on behalf of the Parry Sound Public Library Board and Staff we offer a big note of congratulations to our CEO, Rita Orr who has been formally invited to moderate a panel session of municipal councillors at an upcoming virtual conference on September 23, 2020!  And in addition, she has been asked to sit on the 8th Annual 2020 Northern Lit Awards and to be on the panel as a juror in charge of choosing this year's finalist for Nonfiction.  There are three books and Rita tells us she has been "reading like crazy".

Town of Parry Sound Special Council Meeting
On Monday, July 13, 2020 I attended a Special Town of Parry Sound Council Meeting via ZOOM to deal with a pending bylaw making face masks mandatory while indoors at public venues.  Parry Sound Town Council voted 7-0 in favour of such a municipal bylaw effective Friday, July 17, 2020 to coincide with the region moving to the province's Stage 3 reopening.
