Kneehill County is looking for a new chief administrative officer. Al Hoggan has submitted his resignation to county council, citing his desire to take a job in municipal government elsewhere.

AL HOGGANAl Hoggan."We really appreciate the work that he's done for Kneehill County; I really appreciate the work that he's done with me over the past five years," stated Reeve Jerry Wittstock. "We were happy to have him; we're not happy to see him leave, but that being said, it's the CAO (and) that's what they do."

"I wished him well, and I do: I truly believe that he did a lot for us and I hope that he does really well in his new position, and he will," Wittstock added.

Today's (Wed.) announcement did not say where Hoggan was moving; Wittstock said that's up to his new employers to announce. In the meantime, Kneehill must look for a replacement.

"The CAO is the only employee we as council have, so we have to be very picky about who we put in that position and we'll be starting that in the next little while," outlined Wittstock. "Al will be remaining with us for a bit yet and we hope that he can possibly guide us in the right direction to get that information forwarded to us."
