The Township of Alnwick-Haldimand announces that Mayor John Logel will return from a leave of absence as of Monday, July 15.
The township announced the leave of absence June 4, citing Logel's need to focus on a personal matter. Deputy-Mayor Gail Latchford has filled in for his duties in the meantime, including emceeing the township's Canada Day celebrations and presiding over township council meetings.
At the time of the June announcement, Port Hope Mayor Bob Sanderson was named as Logel's replacement as county warden, an office he'd been elected to early in the year.
Alnwick-Haldimand chief administrative officer Robin van de Moosdyk said that Logel's return as mayor does not affect whether Sanderson steps down, as the county has its own procedures to formalize the wardenship.
