Kathryn Ironmonger, who has been Erin’s Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) since 2013, will no longer be working for the Town.
“It’s with regret that I announce that after 24 years, Kathryn Ironmonger will be stepping down from her position as the CAO/Town Manager effective Jan. 31, 2017,” said Mayor Al Alls.
“Her personal commitments are taking priority at this time and we wish Kathryn success in her future endeavours.”
Ironmonger worked about 34 years in municipal administration, 24 of them in Erin.
She was clerk-administrator for the Village of Erin, then clerk in the amalgamated Town of Erin. She served briefly as Acting CAO after Lisa Hass resigned in 2012, and continued as clerk while Frank Miele was CAO.
She was appointed to the CAO position after Miele was fired in 2013. She left work on sick leave in June of 2016.
Derek McCaughan, a former manager with the City of Guelph, was hired shortly afterwards as Interim CAO, and Town Council has confirmed that he will continue in that role while the Town advertises for a permanent CAO in the near future.
