Says concerns over consulting firm’s qualifications are ‘games and politics’
Pontiac Sept. 15, 2021
A resolution relating to forestry once again caused a stir at this month’s Council of Mayors, held Wednesday at the Lion’s Hall in Bryson.
The discussion began when Warden Jane Toller called for a vote on a resolution to contract consulting firm Nova Sylva a contract to create a strategic forestry plan for the MRC Pontiac. The firm had presented its offer of service at the closed-door plenary meeting in August.
Speaking to the motion, L’isle aux Allumettes Mayor Winston Sunstrum stood to present his concerns, which he had sprovided in writing to the Council before the meeting. Sunstrum explained that his own research led him to believe that Nova Sylva had limited experience with developing forestry action plans and believed that other companies might be better suited to serve the MRC’s needs.
