Nov 09, 2017

Please see the resignation letter from City Manager George V. Harvie, dated October 31, 2017.

Dear Mayor and Council,

I am writing to submit my resignation as City Manager effective May 5, 2018.

As per the terms of my Employment Contract dated February 15, 2002, amended October 18, 2004 and renewed April 13, 2015, I am providing six months’ notice as required. I will be away from the office for four weeks from November 6 returning to work December 11, 2017. Upon my return I will work out an exit strategy with Council in order to fulfill my commitment as outlined in my Employment Contract and as best suited for Council in maintaining the ongoing business of Delta.

I am proud of the achievements that my team, with the support of Council, has accomplished over the last 16 years. We have undertaken and been successful in many high-profile community beneficial projects and we have secured the City in a strong financial position going forward.

It has been a distinct privilege to serve Mayor and Council. I am grateful for the trust and confidence you have had in my ability to competently and faithfully lead the City.

Thank you for the honour to allow me to serve as Delta’s City Manager.

Yours truly,

George V. Harvie
City Manager
