CORNWALL – Cornwall’s top administrator will be staying on the job another year.

The city announced Friday that CAO Norm Levac will stay in his position until next year.

“City Council is pleased with Mr. Levac’s decision to stay on as CAO for another year,” said Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy.

Levac had planned on kicking back and relaxing at the end of 2014 but agreed to delay his retirement for a few months given the city budget and a slate of new city councillors fresh at the helm.

With more pressing issues coming up in 2015 such as strategic planning, the harbour divestiture and transitioning for some major managerial positions, including his own, he wanted to stay put for now.

Levac will retire at the end of April 2016.

CFO Maureen Adams tells Cornwall Newswatch the extension won’t come at any additional cost to the city.

“There are no changes to the CAO’s compensation as a result of his decision to hold the position of CAO for another year. Therefore, this has no impact to the city’s budget for 2015,” Adams said in an email to CNW.
