Sarnia conducting CAO recruitment in-house

City council has opted to find a new Chief Administrative Officer using the in-house Human Resources department at City Hall.

A job notice to replace Margaret Misek-Evans, who left last month, was posted with a closing date of Jan. 13.

Hiring a recruitment firm or using Lambton County staff to find replacement candidates for the departed CAO were considered and rejected at a closed-door meeting of council last week.

Alan Shaw has been appointed interim CAO, but he has also tendered his resignation and is leaving Feb. 1.
