Carbon searching for new CAO


Carbon LogoIt appears the Village of Carbon is set to search for a new CAO.
According to minutes from the February 2 Special Council Meeting, the Carbon Village Council exited a closed session and Councillor Marie Kooiman moved the Village of Carbon Council revoke the appointment of Vanessa Van der Meer as CAO, Chief Administrator of the Village of Carbon immediately. The motion was carried.
A second motion from Councillor Trina Anderson removed Van de Meer from all signing authority for the village.
This comes as there has been a big change in the Village, with three new councillors elected in a by-election in September of last year.
Prior to this, there has been pressure from residents in the community to make a change. In January 2022, some residents signed on to a petition to remove the Carbon CAO.
So far there has been no posting for the position.
