CAO Bryan Brown and South Glengarry township have parted ways after nearly five years.

A press release issued Tuesday states that “council will be considering its options for the leadership of the township over the next few weeks,” adding that “further information will be provided as it becomes available.”

No reason was given for Mr. Brown’s departure. “Bryan made a significant contribution to the township during his years here, and council wishes him the best of success in the future,” Mayor Frank Prevost said in the release.

Mr. Brown was officially appointed as CAO June 23, 2014, succeeding Derek Brandt who was fired earlier that year.

Mr. Brown had previously held CAO posts in Machin and Madawaska Valley.
