The Town of Nanton terminated the contract of Chief Administration officer Kevin Miller at its first meeting in 2018.
Mayor Jennifer Handley says they wish Miller the best in his future endeavours.
Handley said there is a turnover rate of CAO's when new councils are elected.
"And especially being a new council we really need to understand what it is we need," said Handley. "So we will be meeting as a council to get a clear idea of what the next steps will be."
Handley adds there is a lot of work involved in finding a new CAO and they want to ensure they do it properly.
"How long the process will take, there is work involved and we want to make sure we do it properly."
In the interim Marianne Morrison, who was the Director of Corporate Services, will be assuming the position of interim CAO.
She filled the role once before when they were in between CAOs.
