Bathurst splits manager/treasurer duties

The city of Bathurst is splitting one of its management positions into two jobs.

A few years ago the city combined the positions of manager and treasurer.

Mayor Paolo Fongemie says it's necessary to ensure the new employees are able to fully concentrate efforts and leadership on the City's new vision and philosophy.

Until recently, the position had been held by Andre Doucet who, Fongemie says, proudly served the interests of Bathurst citizens for numerous years.

The city began looking for a Treasurer on Friday, July 14th.

Engineer Todd Pettigrew will assume the role of City Manager on an interim basis.
