Town Corporate Services director resigns

    The Town of Drumheller is on the search for a new director of Corporate Services after Michael Roy resigned last week.     Mayor Terry Yemen confirmed that Roy, who has been with the Town of Drumheller since 2007, has decided to leave. He will remain with the Town of Drumheller until the end of July.
    “It’s tough to lose someone like him because that world is so tight knit that it is really hard to find a replacement,” said Yemen, adding that about five other municipalities are looking to fill the same position.
    Roy came in after Michael Minchin resigned in March of 2007, in time to act as returning officer for the municipal election.
    Yemen says the town has hired Bill Wulff, long time Town of Drumheller accountant who retired last year, on an interim basis and has contacted a head hunting agency to find a replacement.
    “He (Wulff) made a verbal commitment that he would stay until we find a replacement, and one month afterwards to bring the person up to speed,” said Yemen. “It is a real asset because we will be able to make the transition with Mike leaving, and then when we find the next person, he will do a month of on the job training to bring him up to speed.”
    He admits that it may be difficult to find a replacement because of the stiff competition from other municipalities.
    “We might have to bring someone in with a little less experience, and help that person in the position,” said Yemen. “Ideally if a person came with everything you want, then we are going to lean towards that person, but because of the competitive market, we might have to shift our plan.”
