Following the retirement of Dysart et al public works director Brian Nicholson the municipality has hired an interim director.

After a closed session meeting on Sept. 7 council authorized the appointment of Rob Camelon as interim director of public works effective immediately wrote chief administrative officer Tamara Wilbee in an email to the Echo .

In addition they appointed Blake Sisson as interim patrol superintendent also effective immediately.

Both positions will continue to the end of the winter season and will be reviewed and evaluated throughout the next few months “to determine what works best for the department and the municipality going forward” wrote Wilbee.

Nicholson left his position with the municipality in August. He did not return request for comment.

Former head of parks and recreation Ray Miscio also left his position with the municipality earlier this year.

In a phone interview with the Echo from his new home in Smooth Rock Falls Miscio said he enjoyed his time working with Dysart and that he had purchased the home in northern Ontario eight years ago.

He hopes to pursue his dream of running a hunting and fishing business.
