As the City of Dawson Creek rolls into budget discussions  - a voluntary cut has been made right at the top.

The city’s Chief Administrative Officer Duncan Redfearn’s last day will be March 9.

Redfearn will be leaving his position with the City of Dawson Creek to become the new CAO in Grand Forks, BC.

Redfearn has worked for the City of Dawson Creek for 12 years, three of those as the Chief Administrative Officer.

“It was one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make, leaving behind an amazing team at the City of Dawson Creek, friends, family, and deep roots within Dawson Creek,” said Redfearn.

In preparation for his departure in March, Redfearn will work with Council to fill the vacancy.

“The decision to leave has not been made lightly, over my 20 years in the community and 12 years at the City, my family and I have established some very deep roots,” he told staff this week.

Redfearn will be working with council over the next month to fill the vacancy.
