City of Lacombe CAO announces departure

Council will announce plans for CAO recruitment shortly

The City of Lacombe is losing a key member of its senior management team as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Dion Pollard announced that he is leaving to take on a new role as the City Manager for the City of Lloydminster.

The announcement was made Thursday morning.

“I have had nothing but positive experiences during my time here, and I leave impressed with the great working relationship that exists between staff and Council,” said Pollard.

“My decision is in no way a reflection on the City organization or council, but is based on being closer to family and an opportunity to work in the community I grew up in.”

Pollard has served as CAO since April 24th, 2017.

He arrived at a time when a number of significant initiatives were underway. He quickly became a good team leader, providing sound leadership and guidance. He will wind down his tenure by fulfilling his role as Returning Officer for the 2017 Lacombe Municipal Election.

“While council is obviously disappointed to see Dion leave, we recognize that this move represents a rare opportunity for Dion and his family and we wish him all the best,” said Mayor Steve Christie.

Council will announce their plans for CAO recruitment shortly.
