The Town of Westville is searching for a new chief administrative officer.

Scott Fraser, who has served as CAO for the last four years confirmed this morning that he has accepted a position as Director of Corporate Services with the County of Colchester. He will be finishing his work in Westville the end of December.

“It was a tough decision,” said Fraser who had previously worked with the Town of New Glasgow. “I liked the work we did here in Westville.”

Fraser started work in Westville in February of 2009. Westville Mayor Roger MacKay said they are sad to see Fraser go but are thankful for the contributions he made to the town.

“He’s been very good at looking after our financial status. He certainly worked hard on bringing our taxes down,” MacKay said. “If you don’t have good finances you’re – as they say – up the creek without a paddle.”

MacKay said they’ll be advertising the position with the hopes of finding another suitable CAO. He said there is also the possibility that they could look at other options such as sharing administrative services with another town.

Fraser said there were a couple things he was proud of accomplishing during his time in the town including setting up the return of the public works department back to the town.

“It was a lot of fun setting it up and getting things going for them here,” he said.

He said he’s also proud of some of the work they’ve done with the town of Stellarton and Trenton.
