Council leadership on a local board will see a shake up in 2020.

On Dec. 6, Coun. Tina Comi sent a letter of resignation to Collingwood’s Downtown BIA board members.

“It has been my pleasure to be your council representative. Shortly after being sworn-in around this time last year, councillors were provided a list of boards and committees to apply to and the BIA was my first selection,” wrote Comi in her letter. “As a lifelong entrepreneur I have tremendous respect for the dedication, sacrifice and determination it takes to succeed in business and the pressure of not only providing income for yourself but for those you employ as well.”

In an interview with CollingwoodToday on Tuesday, Comi said she has resigned for medical reasons.

“I shall be stepping down from my role as your council representative but I will not be stepping away from promoting our vibrant downtown area to our residents and visitors,” she wrote.

According to the Dec. 12 BIA meeting minutes, the BIA carried a resolution to request council consider the appointment of Coun. Deb Doherty as replacement.
