Sarnia city solicitor leaving

The City of Sarnia is losing another member of its senior management team.

After 12 years with the municipality, City Solicitor Scott McEachran has accepted a position in private practice with a firm in Bracebridge effective January 4, 2019.

Mayor Mike Bradley wished him well in the future.

“He was a very diligent employee of the city, and he also supported the police services board for a number of years as the secretary,” said Bradley. “I think now though there is an opportunity with Scott leaving for us as a council, when we get into budget, to take a look at positions like this to see if we need one or two city solicitors, and I think that’s an opportunity for the council, along with other spending that’s occurred in the last term, that needs to be examined too.”

Corporate Manager of Human Resources Jim Crawford said the recruitment process to find a replacement is underway.

Dan Byskal is the current assistant city solicitor.
