As of the middle of May, the RM of Hanover will have a new chief administrator.
RM of Hanover reeve Stan Toews confirms that Luc Lahaie will take over as chief administrative officer for the municipality commencing May 14.
“We received a number of good applications but there were a few things that gave Luc the edge,” stated Toews. “He has a history in economic development and he is already familiar with the area.”
Lahaie has been the chief administrative officers for the RM of De Salaberry for the past ten years. Toews noted his council has worked with the RM of De Salaberry in the past and was quite pleased with the way they handled businesses under the guidance of Lahaie. This helped which also helped with council’s decision on the recent hire.
While the RM of Hanover gained an administrator, the RM of De Salaberry must now find a replacement, confirmed Reeve Ron Musick.
“We are surprised to see Luc go, but it is a good opportunity for him,” stated Musick. “We have hired the same consultant as the RM of Hanover to help us with the search for his replacement.”
Incidentally, Lahaie replaced Musick a decade ago when he retired from the position of chief administrative officer after almost twenty-five years.
