Town Hires Interim CAO

Posted On: Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Best wishes to Shawn Everitt, who has been the Acting CAO and at the council meeting held Monday, December 18, was appointed the Interim CAO for the Town of The Blue Mountains.

Town Hires Interim CAO

The CAO is the sole employee of Council and the hiring of that individual is a very important decision  for Council to make. 

With a timeframe of up to six months for due process and the potential of a "lame duck" council situation occurring July 28, 2018 which essentially limits the decision-making ability of Council,  the selection of a new CAO would not be permitted. 

Council opted for Option #5, November 15th from the Staff Report titled Chief Administrative Officer Recruitment 

Option 5 Consider the placement of an internal candidate to take on the CAO duties on an interim basis. This option essentially extends the current arrangement with the recruitment option for selecting a permanent CAO to be determined at a later date. Council could consider the possibility of interviewing interested staff and determine if there is a preferred candidate to take on the interim CAO duties on a longer-term basis. Placement of an Interim Internal CAO  could be done in a 1 to 1 ½ month time frame with backing filling of the successful Candidate’s position to be arranged.
