The Town of Petrolia is willing to release the contract of the former CAO but Manny Baron has refused. But the town won’t release Baron’s settlement package.
It was part of a request filed by The Independent under the Municipal Freedom of Information Act.
The Independent requested the report by Investigator John Fleming on buildings Baron owned and rented to the town be released. That was denied and is being appealed.
The newspaper also asked for the CAO’s contract, his letter of resignation, and details of any settlement package. The documents have yet to be released.
