Tetrault took a leave of absence prior to the fall municipal election so that he could run for the PC party in the Dawson Trail Riding. After he lost his bid to MLA Ron Lemieux, he attempted to return to his job in the municipality. However a heated debate took place and Tetrault tendered his resignation effective immediately.
Soon afterwards, three members of council voted to re-hire his as administrator while the reeve and remaining council members were absent from the table. That decision was rejected as invalid because there was no quorum of council at the time of the vote.
RM of Springfield Reeve Jim McCarthy says that as far as the process goes, Tetrault will not be rehired by the municipality.
“We are working on advertising the position and that will happened during January and we will have a new administrator hired within the next few months,” stated McCarthy.
