MULGRAVE: Town Council is still on the hunt for a permanent Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).

After over two weeks of advertising, Town of Mulgrave staff are screening through potential candidates for a new CAO.

Interim CAO Kevin Matheson said he plans to begin looking though the applications this week. Matheson, who took the job in mid-November, 2015, said his term will end later this year.

“It can change by the minute but I’ve probably got about a dozen [applications] so far,” Matheson said last week. “I expect there will be more.”

He also said council itself will sit on the recruitment committee, with Matheson helping.

When asked when the town hopes to fill the position, Matheson said council would prefer to have someone in place by November.
