Council pegs November 12 for CAO Lundy’s last day
Council has snapped up the new Chief Administrative Officer for the municipality, and though they will have two CAOs on the payroll until the end of the year, only one will be working.
At their Tuesday, October 5 meeting, this council's last meeting of its term, council approved the hiring of Tully Clifford as the new CAO, on a three-year renewable contract, to begin work on Monday, November 15.
The motion passed by a 5-2 vote, Mayor Irwin and Councillor Gary Taje opposed. Councillor Taje said that he was opposed because he does not believe the outgoing council should hire the next CAO. He said that the next council should make the choice, and would have time to do so.
Councillor Dean Ward argued that the list of candidates got short in a hurry, because other places were hiring them, and said that council needed to get a new CAO while it could.
Council then passed a second motion, to set current CAO Gordon Lundy's last day of work for Friday, November 12.
Lundy will continue to receive his full salary until the end of the year, but will not be working at the municipality. This motion passed by a 5-2 vote, Councillors Taje and Mitchell opposed.
Lundy had originally planned to leave his position as of December 31 of this year.
The salary range for the CAO position was set unanimously by council at $120,000 to $140,000, plus benefits. The municipality would not comment on how this compared to the previous salary for the position.
Tully Clifford, who will begin work on November 15 as the new CAO, was born in Calgary and has been working in the United States since 2001. He holds an MBA from the University of Calgary, a M.Sc in Civil Engineering from the University of Calgary, and a B.Sc in Civil Engineering from the Royal Military College.
He has worked for the City of Calgary in various engineering roles, and most recently has been the Public Works Director for the City of Solvang, in California.
Clifford has strong family ties in Alberta, and the municipality reports that he is excited to be moving to Crowsnest Pass.
