City To Advertise To Fill O’Connor Opening

This is a release from the City of Ottawa:

Worth noting is that the memo announcing the city clerk opening was published in The Bulldog on Aug. 23, 2023. It appears from this memo that they won’t be hiring a firm for an executive search.

Recruitment of City Clerk Date: December 13, 2023

The purpose of this memo is to inform Council that an executive search for a new City Clerk will  be launched today and will remain open until January 12, 2024. The executive search for this  position follows the retirement of the former City Clerk Rick O’Connor.  

The City Clerk position is being advertised with key organizations and on platforms including the  Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO), Municipal  Information Network News, Federation of Canadian Municipalities and LinkedIn. 

The City Clerk is a mandatory statutory officer appointed by Council under the Municipal Act,  2001. At the City of Ottawa, in addition to fulfilling legislative requirements under the Act, the City  Clerk leads the Office of the City Clerk and ensures that all statutory obligations are administered  to fully comply with provincial legislation, particularly as it relates to matters such as elections,  access to information and privacy, information management, archives, Council and Committee  meetings, the Council-adopted Accountability Framework and municipal governance. 

Horizon Ottawa Gets Audited, LRT Not So Much

As announced in August, David White will continue to serve as City Solicitor and Interim City  Clerk during this period of transition, and the Mayor and Members of Council will be advised on  the outcome of the recruitment process once it is complete. 

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly.  Sincerely, 

Wendy Stephanson 

City Manager
