A statement from Mayor Jeff Colvin:
As we launch our 120-day plan with a new direction for Chestermere, there will be many additions and changes for our community. As part of this change of direction, we will be moving forward with a change to our chief administrative officer, (CAO). We thank our current CAO, Bernie Morton, for his service to our community. Mr. Morton began his time with the city three years ago on August 1st 2018, when he was chosen as the Chief Administrative Officer for Chestermere. During that time, his accomplishments for our municipality include, amongst other things, completing an organizational redesign, improving engagements with the development community and the onerous task of managing the Covid-19 pandemic emergency response. We wish Mr. Morton well in his future endeavors. Council will be moving forward with an interim CAO to assist the new council and will have further announcements shortly.
