Fernie council relieves CAO to move in a ‘different direction.’

Fernie council has stated former Chief Administrative Officer (CAO,) Allan Chabot, is no longer working with the City because council is moving in a different direction.

It was announced on Friday, August 24, that Chabot would no longer serve as the CAO for the City of Fernie.

“Mr. Chabot has been relieved of his duties in accordance with the terms of his contract and the Community Charter,” said Mary Giuliano, mayor of Fernie. “Council has decided to go into a different direction and

philosophy.”

Council has appointed current Director of Financial and Computer Services for the City, Jim Hendricks, to fill in as the acting CAO until the position has been filled.

 

They expect to find a permanent replacement within three or four months.
