The City of Guelph has parted ways with its long-time chief building official Bruce Poole.
The development unfolded abruptly this week but the exact circumstances related to it are unknown.
There is speculation it unfolded after Poole expressed criticism internally regarding certain building department issues but so far we have been unable to determine the accuracy of that suggestion.
The municipality's GM of human resources is its spokesperson on the Poole development.
David Godwaldt asserted he could not comment on whether Poole's severance package included a confidentiality agreement potentially barring Poole from speaking about why he came no longer to be in his role.
Poole has been in that role for more than 20 years.
