On behalf of Town Council, I would like to inform the citizens of our community on two items of significance regarding local government:
1. Council has been presented with the official resignation of Councilor Shanna York as an elected member of town council. Your council shall accept Councillor York’s resignation with regret, and appreciate and thank her for contributions and time, serving the community as an elected official.
2. It is with great pleasure that I announce the hiring of Shanna York as the Town of Foam Lake’s Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) effective August 1st, 2023. After posting the vacant CAO position, council conducted interviews and made the decision to offer the position to Shanna York, which she has accepted. Shanna brings a solid foundation of advanced Local Government Administration education and experience having served as the Administrator for the R.M. of Foam Lake #276 for the past 11 years. This position is tailor made for individuals who:
-thrive on challenge
-are driven to succeed in a team atmosphere
-are passionate about the community
-bring strong administrative skillsets to the table
We believe Shanna York meets all the above requirements to succeed and look forward to continuing our relationship working with her in the new position as Town CAO.
Town Council has been through an extensive HR turnover the past couple of years and we now look forward to the council/staff settling into the work of governing and operations to get the work done.
Mayor Shelley Thoen-Chaykoski
