Outgoing Winnipeg CAO Doug McNeil will stay on the job a month longer than planned to help the city through this year’s flood season.
Doug McNeil, the city’s chief administrative officer, announced his retirement in February.
His last day was to be April 26.
The city says McNeil will stay on until the end of May as the city and province work together through this year’s flood season, which is expected to be significant.
Mayor Brian Bowman is leading a committee tasked with recruiting and recommending the appointment of the city’s next CAO.
“The city’s CAO plays a critical leadership role in managing the city, and will be responsible for supporting council as the city grows and continues to build over the coming years,” Bowman said.
Other members of the search committee include Couns. Devi Sharma (Old Kildonan), Ross Eadie (Mynarski), Sherri Rollins (Fort Rouge-East Fort Garry), and Matt Allard (St. Boniface).
