Trevor Wilhelm, Windsor Star, reports, “Town lawyer Susan Hirota was appointed Amherstburg’s acting CAO after three staff were told to leave town property on Aug. 9. On Tuesday, the Town of Kingsville announced Hirota will be moving to their organization as the director of Legal and Clerk Services.
Trevor Wilhelm, Windsor Star reports, in part, “Mayor Aldo DiCarlo confirmed Wednesday that three employees were escorted off town property on Monday. He would not confirm their names or why they were shown the door, but said town lawyer Susan Hirota has been “temporarily assigned” Miceli’s work.”
DiCarlo told the Star that the cancellation of Monday’s council meeting was a coincidence and unrelated to the turmoil.
“There were some report issues in the agenda,” he said. “It wasn’t a huge agenda. But unfortunately, one or two of the more important ones actually had some last minute questions that came up. Without being able to deal with that that night, we just felt like there wasn’t a point to have a meeting that night.”
Am800 reported Miceli launched a lawsuit against Mayoral candidate Glenn Swinton for libel and defamation for comments posted on Facebook earlier this summer:
“The post alleged Miceli was involved in fraud when employed by the City of Windsor and that he directed Amherstburg Council to contract out the town’s police services to Windsor.”
