Donal Smith appointed Hamilton Deputy Mayor
Donal Smith has been appointed Deputy Mayor of Hamilton, at the the first City meeting held by the new Corporation under Mayor Graeme Outerbridge.
The public section of the meeting was attended by about 15 people, a number of whom put suggestions to the recently-elected Team Hamilton that replaced Charles Gosling's administration last month.
Mr Smith is president of Bermuda Emissions Control, and vice president of Par-la-Ville Hotel and Residences Limited, the company seeking to build a new hotel in the city, the St Regis Bermudiana.
Mr Outerbridge also announced the formation of a new Business Advisory Committee, whose meeting schedule has yet to be announced.
"We all felt it was important for the business community to be an active part of the council," the Mayor said.
The new team intends to "reach out to the larger organisations" such as the Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers, the Association of Bermuda International Companies, the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation and Business Bermuda, he added.
