A new council reigns in Goderich.
Their inaugural meeting was held last night, where councilors, the deputy mayor, and mayor were sworn in.
Mayor, John Grace, says some priorities include establishing an environmental committee, and reinstating the economic development committee.
As it stands, the new council is entirely made up of men.
Grace says it’s important to promote diversity and inclusion, and is suggesting a review of the procedural by-law to address the make-up of committees of council.
He would like to see it mandatory each committee would include one member of council, with at least three women and three men.
