Sidney’s Chief Administrative Officer, Randy Humble has announced his plans to retire after serving the municipality for 25 years.

Humble’s last day of service is planned for June 30.

“It has been a privilege to serve this remarkable community and I thank the Town of Sidney for an incredible journey,” said Humble in a news release. “I have heartfelt gratitude to the current town council, led by Mayor Cliff McNeil-Smith, and past mayors and councils, for their leadership and commitment to the betterment of Sidney. I have full confidence in the Town of Sidney’s dedicated staff, and I am sure the municipality will continue to thrive under the leadership of the next CAO.”

Several of the township’s foundational bylaws were spearheaded by him including the current zoning bylaw emphasizing a vibrant, walkable downtown. This was awarded the Gold Award for Excellence in Planning by the Planning Institute of B.C. in 2013.

“It has been a rare gift to have someone of Mr. Humble’s talents and vision dedicate 25 years to the municipality, including 12 years in the demanding position of CAO, “said McNeil-Smith. “His exceptional leadership has created a great team at the Town of Sidney, provided remarkable support for the work of the mayor and council and has helped Sidney blossom into the lively seaside community we enjoy today. I want to sincerely thank Mr. Humble.”

Sidney council has initiated a recruitment process for the position of CAO and an announcement will be made once the position is filled.
