Acting City of Winnipeg CAO Deepak Joshi has resigned from his position following his suspension.
Mayor Brian Bowman released this brief statement on Wednesday:
“Executive Policy Committee has accepted the resignation of Deepak Joshi from the City of Winnipeg, effective today. Additional details cannot be provided as this is a personnel matter.”
Joshi was suspended by Bowman in January, but for only three working days under the powers in place. EPC extended that suspension for 30 days, set to expire on February 21.
Bowman plans to hire a new CAO by March.
