The outgoing chief administrative officer in the Region of Queens says it was an opportunity to better respond to his family obligations.
Richard MacLellan resigned today.
He will continue working with council on a transition plan over the next few months before he takes over as CAO in Bridgewater later this year.
Current Bridgewater CAO Ken Smith will be retiring this fall.
MacLellan says there are things in town that resonate well with him.
