Wolfville's chief administrative office Josh Pyrcz, centre, looks over a notice of motion the town brought to the Kings Partnership Steering Committee meeting with Kings County councillors Pauline Raven, left, and Wayne Atwater.

Wolfville’s chief administrative officer has resigned after less than a year on the job.

Josh Pyrcz’s resignation was effective immediately, a late-night news release from Wolfville council stated. He was hired in the position last August to replace Diane Mombourquette, who spent 18 months in the job before leaving in April 2013.

Pyrcz plans to return to Alberta to pursue new endeavours. In the meantime, Mike MacLean, director of financial services, will serve as acting CAO.

“Town council, as well as the management team, remain committed to completing the key projects identified in the Wolfville in the 2014-2015 town budget and to continuing efforts for achieving the key strategic directions outlined in the 2014–2017 council strategic plan,” said Deputy Mayor David Mangle.

    Have no fear Wolfville, you are better without Mr. Pyrcz. He is nothing more than a young ambitious plagiarizing child that deflects away from questions he can not answer or lies to your face. In the CAO position, you would have soon seen his shortcomings! Wolfville is one of the prettiest towns I have ever seen. Wish you the very best in your search.

    From my experience working with Josh I think this is a sad loss for Kings County. Josh was progressive, open-minded and brought fresh ideas, enthusiasm and experience to municipal politics in the valley. I wish him well in his future.
