The City of Guelph's Clerk, Blair Labelle, will become the city's new head of information technology, as soon as Mark Amorosi, Guelph's executive director of corporate and human resources, can find a suitable replacement.
"He'll still be heavily involved in all of the open government work because a lot of it is technology enabled," Amorosi said.
He said the city is looking for the next clerk to have "the ability, skills, knowledge etc. of someone who knows how to work with open government."
Experience running an online election "would definitely be an asset, but not a make or break" characteristic the new clerk should have, as Labelle will still be available to help with the implementation of the city's first online vote this October.
The City will accept applications for the clerk's position until March 3. It pays between $109,800 and $137,260 per year.
