Bathurst's newest councillor takes oath of office

Bathurst's newest councillor has officially been sworn in.

Michael Willett won his council seat in December's municipal by-election and took his oath of office at a special public meeting on Monday night.

Willett says his first order of business is to get to know his fellow councillors and what they've been working on.

Willett looks forward to getting more citizens involved with the city's parks as well as cleaning up and redeveloping the former Smurfit Stone mill site.
