The process is underway to find a new chief administrative officer for the Municipality of Killarney Turtle Mountain.

The search started after the former CAO and the municipality parted ways in early spring.

Mayor Merv Tweed says the process is moving along and they hope to have someone in place as soon as possible.

“We’ve finalized the job description and it’s pretty straight forward. We’ve started advertising for the position and hope to be doing interviews by the end of May.”

Tweed says it’s always a challenge finding someone for that position. “I know other municipalities are also looking for people and anyone interested in taking on the position knows a move is involved and we hope they’d be wiling to come to Killarney.”

“It’s pretty much a standard CAO position to fill. We are looking for someone with strengths in municipal work and organization. We’re pretty strong financially and we think we’ll find a match that will work for all of us” said Merv Tweed.
