Maple Ridge, BC: On June 8, 2021, Al Horsman’s resignation as CAO was submitted to Council and duly accepted. Mr. Horsman will remain in his position until August 13 and will assist Mayor, Council and the City’s Human Resources Department in the development and implementation of an interim strategy until a new CAO is appointed.
"Al’s contributions to Council, staff and the City of Maple Ridge over the past two years leave us in a much better place," said Mayor Mike Morden. “We appreciate his commitment, through Council direction, to continue on and help recruit a new CAO. What he has given has been our gain — we sincerely wish Al all the very best as he rejoins his family."
“I will deeply miss the exciting work being undertaken at the City as well as staff and the community at large. However, personal commitments back East have made it challenging to remain here,” said Mr. Horsman. “I thank Mayor and Council for their support over the last couple of years. I would also like to thank the leadership team and staff at the City for their support, professionalism and dedication.”
Council has directed the Human Resources Department to begin a search for a new CAO
