FORT ERIE, July 31, 2012 – Fort Erie’s search for a new Chief Administrative Officer is back on.
After an extensive evaluation process, the Town extended an offer of employment to an external candidate in mid-July. However, the offer has now been withdrawn after the Town and the candidate were unable to come to terms on an employment agreement.
Council will meet in early September to consider its options. In the meantime, Ron Tripp will continue to serve as Interim CAO, a position he assumed in August 2011. The search for a new Chief Administrative Officer began last fall following the resignation of Harry Schlange who accepted a position with an Ottawa-area provider of medical laboratory services.
