Mississippi Mills is now formally looking to fill the role of Chief Administrative Officer and is hoping a head hunter will be able to help them find the best candidate available.

The town put out a Request for Proposal for executive search company today (Jan. 23), with a Jan. 31 deadline.

Diane Smithson, the town’s current CAO, is leaving to join the Town of Carleton Place as CAO.  Smithson has been the CAO for Mississippi Mills since 1998. Her last day will be March 2, 2018.

In order to ensure continuity until a full-time person is hired, Shawna Stone, Clerk, will be the acting CAO.
