Cornwall Ontario — Cornwall’s Chief Administrative Officer Norm Levac will be delaying his retirement in order to assist the new City Council during its transition period into office.
Mr. Levac has agreed to stay on as CAO for the time being after consulting with Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy and members of City Council. Mr. Levac originally planned to retire at the end of 2014.
“I am pleased that Mr. Levac has agreed to continue as CAO,” said Mayor O’Shaughnessy. “His experience and familiarity with City issues will be extremely beneficial to the new Council as they embark on this term. Mr. Levac has enjoyed working as CAO for the past two years and he understands the importance of assisting the new Council during this transition period.”
One of the first major issues Council will be tasked with is the establishment of the 2015 City budget, which will outline spending plans for City programs, services and projects in the coming year.
“Mr. Levac’s presence will ensure that we have continuity when it comes time for Council to deal with the budget and other important matters,” said Mayor O’Shaughnessy.
It’s still Mr. Levac’s intention to retire. Mr. Levac has agreed to provide a three-month notice to Council prior to his retirement.
