New president for Chaleur Regional Service Commission

There's a new president for the Chaleur Regional Service Commission.

After three years as commission chair, Beresford mayor Jean Guy-Grant has handed the torch over to Belledune mayor Joe Noel.

Grant says Noel will have some pretty challenging files to deal with, including regional policing, climate change, and regional economic development.

Noel is expected to table recommendations from a working committee on the creation of a regional structure for economic development in the coming weeks.
