The Township of Douro-Dummer is notifying the public that Mayor J. Murray Jones will be taking a leave while he recovers from recent surgery.
"I am on the mend and will be back holding the gavel at the Council table soon," Mayor Jones says. "I want to thank my wife, Anne, my family as well as all my friends and neighbours for their support."
The date of Mayor Jones’ return to his duties is not known at this time, but it is hopeful that it will be early in 2018.
While Mayor Jones recovers, Deputy Mayor Moher will assume any necessary tasks in the absence of the Mayor. “Council will ensure that the Township of Douro-Dummer continues to operate in our usual manner,” says Mayor Jones.
We wish Mayor Jones all the best with his recovery.
