The position of CAO for the Town of Rimbey is, once again, waiting to be filled.

Lucien Cloutier, who took over as Rimbey’s CAO July 2, is moving on.

In an email to the Review, Cloutier stated he has accepted a new position.

“I have accepted a position with the City of Wetaskiwin as their Manager of Legislative Services. My last day working for the town will be January 16, 2015. I start with the City of Wetaskiwin, January 19, 2015. I handed in my resignation to the Mayor on December 11, 2015. I will be moving to Wetaskiwin at the end of January,” Cloutier said.

The decision came after a great deal of thought and contemplation, he added.

“Rimbey is a wonderful community with a big heart and an unbelievably strong core of community groups and volunteers. My family and I will miss many things about Rimbey,” he said.

Mayor Rick Pankiw said Cloutier’s resignation will be discussed at the January 12 meeting.

“I think we all have some ideas and will discuss our plans then,” he said.

The assistant town manager Lori Hillis will take over as interim CAO until a replacement is found.
