City council approved the hiring of Karen Fields at last night’s meeting to serve as city solicitor as of January 7th.
For Fields it is a return back to Sault Ste. Marie as over the past 15-years she has been a partner at a law firm in Brampton.
She will oversee the City’s Legal Department and will advise and provide guidance to City Council, the Chief Administrative Officer, Executive and senior management and staff.
City CAO Al Horsman says Karen has extensive legal experience appearing before all levels of court in Ontario and before various administrative tribunals.
