Some recent surgery has kept the Mayor of Douro-Dummer on the sidelines for a bit.

In a news release issued by the Township, J. Murray Jones has been in hospital recently for surgery, and will be away from council chambers while he continues to recover.

Mayor Jones says that he is on the mend, and will be back holding the gavel at the council table soon, and hopes to return early in the new year.

In the meantime, Deputy Mayor Karl Moher will be handling the reigns of Douro-Dummer Council.

In a recent council meeting, councillors were asked to support a motion that Mayor Jones would retain his seat as mayor because of an extended illness, because in normal circumstances, a councillor's seat would be considered absence if a certain number of consecutive meetings were missed.

Jones is also a member of County Council and was also a long time Warden of Peterborough County until late last year.
