A bit of confusion occurred when Gravenhurst Mayor Paul Kelly presented a motion to be voted upon by council to appoint Councillor Heidi Lorenz as the Deputy Mayor for the Town of Gravenhurst for the remainder of the current term which ends in 2022. However, the motion to appoint her was defeated by council. Mayor Paul Kelly believed he was within his right to appoint her with or without the approval of council and staff was directed to bring information regarding this to the November council meeting.
