Mayor gives council's side of ELCD controversy

The mayor of Elliot Lake says a chain of events led to the blow-up involving the Elliot Lake Centre for Development last week.  And Dan Marchisella says it started with some not liking the fact that council was taking over ownership of the White Mountain academy building.  He says what prompted council to order the shut-down of the centre was when its volunteers met to deal to sell off or give away the ELCD’s assets.  He says that’s city property and the members had no right to sell it off and so council intervened with the shutdown order.  Marchisella says council relented when the group promised not to sell off the assets.  As for the claim two councillors bullied one of the employees, Marchisella says the worker told him she wasn’t bullied or threatened.  But she told the mayor one councillor was arrogant and condescending. Marchisella says this isn’t the same as bullying.
