Another tense meeting of Brighton council last night.
At issue was Mayor Mark Walas’s personal investigation into the purchase of a plow truck for the community.
The Integrity Commissioner had said Walas overstepped his authority as Mayor.
Last night, he was accused of changing his story on the issue, and both resident Bob Chorney and councillor Tom Rittwage asked him to resign.
He did not. Mayor Walas said he’d been in business in Brighton for over 20 years, and did not “lie, cheat, or steal”.
