Central Frontenac Council accepted the resignation of Public Works Manager Brad Thake at a special meeting Monday in Sharbot Lake.

Thake formally resigned via email dated July 12.

“We need to formally accept the resignation so we can advertise the position,” said Clerk Administrator Cathy MacMunn.

Thake joined the Central Frontenac staff in April of 2017 but by July of 2018 was on leave for unspecified reasons. David Armstrong took over as “acting” public works manager but just last week Armstrong announced he was leaving for a similar job in his home town of Mississippi Mills.

MacMunn said the public works manager position would be advertised in all the appropriate trade journals but in the meantime, she said she had spoken with North Frontenac CAO Cheryl Robson about temporary assistance and the talks “sounded promising.”

“And David (Armstrong) is just a phone call away for a couple of months,” said Mayor Frances Smith.
