But the current deputy mayor system usually only kicks in when the mayor is out of town or on vacation. This hypothetical new position would place a deputy in situations where the mayor is double-booked and can;t attend, or maybe just an event the mayor can't be bothered with or wishes to avoid.


If that's the case though, why a 130k position for work that could apparently be done by a 40k councillor. The whole thing seems (typically) fishy, especially her backing off when the price went down.

If staff can not find the mayor and need something signed now, they will go to the Deputy Mayor and get them to sign the document.   This was a serious complaint by one of the mayors 2014-18 in this region
