THE CITY’S top administrator has resigned and the city is now working to fill his position.

Don Ramsay handed in his resignation June 26.

“On June 26th, mayor and council accepted the resignation from Don Ramsay,” added Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski. “I would like to thank Mr. Ramsay on behalf of council for the work he did with the city during his time with us and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

City staff have started looking into a replacement already, said Pernarowski.

“We are fortunate to have a dedicated, experienced management team and administrative team at the City of Terrace to help us through this transition,” he said.

There was no immediate reason offered for Ramsay’s resignation.

Ramsay’s resignation comes just over three months since he began working for the city.

Ramsay was hired March 12, 2012 to replace Ron Poole who left nearly a year ago to become the top municipal administrator in Kitimat.

City official Heather Avison will be taking on the role of interim chief administrative officer, a position she undertook after Poole left last summer.

Ramsay came to the city from his position as the Skeena district manager for the provincial transportation and infrastructure ministry.
