Sturgeon County council appointed Bill Minnes as their new interim Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
 
Minnes has over 35 years of experience advising municipal, provincial and federal governments. His strengths includes policy planning in urban, rural and regional environments.
 
“I’m confident Mr. Minnes is the right person to help guide the organization until we find a permanent Chief Administrative Officer,” said Sturgeon County mayor, Alanna Hnatiw. "I would like to thank Rick Wojtkiw for filling the role of Acting CAO during this transition.”
 
Wojtkiw was forced to leave the interim CAO role and return to his previous duties after another staff vacancy in the same department.
 
Sturgeon County ended their contract with Peter Tarnawsky on November 28, 2017, shortly after he won the prestigious R. W. Hay Award for Rural Administrative Excellence.
