Mapleton Township appoints Murray Clarke as acting CAO

by Patrick Raftis

MAPLETON - The township has a new acting chief administrative officer (CAO).

Murray Clarke, who commenced his duties with the township on Nov. 7, was officially appointed CAO through a bylaw passed by Mapleton council on Nov. 14.

Clarke, who previously held CAO positions in several communities, retired from his position as CAO of Kincardine in June, after more than five years with that municipality.

The Nov. 14 meeting was also the last for outgoing CAO Brad McRoberts. The township announced on Oct. 13 that McRoberts was resigning to take a position as CAO of South Bruce Peninsula, where he formerly worked as public works manager.

McRoberts was hired by Mapleton as public works director in July  2014. He became CAO in November 2015.

Clarke was engaged as acting CAO with the assistance of consultants Ward and Uptigrove, who have been hired to assist with the process of replacing McRoberts.

Clarke will serve in the interim position until a new CAO is  appointed. It is anticipated a permanent CAO will be hired at the end of December.
