Information
Request for Decision Summary
 Section 205(2) of the Municipal Government Act requires Council to appoint an individual to carry out the powers, duties and functions of the position of Chief Administrative Officer (City Manager). An appointment of an Interim City Manager is necessary to ensure an individual is appointed while the search for a new City Manager takes place.

Proposed Motion
That David Wolanski be appointed as the Interim City Manager effective May 4, 2019 until such time as a new City Manager is appointed.
Background/Analysis
The current City Manager, Mr. Robert Cotterill, will be leaving his position effective May 3, 2019. Section 205(2) of the Municipal Government Act (MGA) stipulates that a council must appoint a person to carry out the duties of a Chief Administrative Officer (City Manager).

It is Council's desire to appoint Mr. David Wolanski as Interim City Manager to meet the requirement of the Municipal Government Act and allow the operations of the municipality to continue in accordance with the MGA.

Currently Mr. Wolanski is the General  Manager of Community and Protective Services, joining the City in this position in 2013. Prior to this he held the position of Municipal Manager in the Town of Red Cliff, Alberta.

A resolution is required for the appointment as the Act also stipulates that a council may only act by resolution or bylaw.
