Wasaga Beach is getting its former chief administrative officer (CAO) back.

The town announced this morning George Vadeboncoeur is returning to the job by council appointment made on Dec. 6.

Vadeboncoeur was the former CAO of Wasaga Beach for 13 years until announcing his retirement this summer. At that time, Gerry Marshall resigned from his role as mayor of Penetanguishene and warden of Simcoe County council to take on the role of interim CAO.

The town announced yesterday Marshall was no longer on staff.

Vadeboncoeur was elected as a councillor for Penetanguishene town council in the Oct. 22 election. 

“Council is confident in George’s abilities to lead staff and ensure that council’s objectives are achieved,” said Mayor Nina Bifolchi in a press release. “On behalf of council, I am happy to welcome him back to Wasaga Beach.”

According to the press release, Vadeboncoeur is happy to be back.

“Together we had accomplished so much as an organization and I look forward to the exciting task ahead,” Vadeboncoeur said. “I am particularly pleased about being able to work with the dedicated staff at the Town of Wasaga Beach.”
