A motion tabled by Espanola Mayor Jill Beer to acknowledge First Nations and their contribution to the municipality has been deferred.
Mayor Beer wants First Nations acknowledged at the start of every council meeting.
Councillor Sandra Hayden says it is simply an acknowledgement.
However, Councillors Ken Duplessis and Maureen Vanalstine both expressed concerns about it.
Duplessis wants to know what the purpose of it is and Van Alstine wants to make sure the wording falls within legal guidelines.
Mayor Beer was absent for the discussion, so the council agreed to defer the motion until the next meeting of council later this month.
