Chris Cvik resigns one month before new manager takes over

Chris Cvik, the acting city manager of Prince Albert, has resigned, leaving Saskatchewan's third largest city without a top administrator again.

The new hire for the job, Jim Toye, does not start until January.

According to a news release, city council in Prince Albert will meet Monday to appoint another interim city manager.

Cvik was also Prince Albert's director of corporate services and was made the acting manager in September after city manager Robert Cotterill was fired following a resolution of city council to end his contract.

In October, Toye was recruited to become Prince Albert's new city manager. He is from North Battleford where he was that city's top official for almost 14 years.

Toye's contract starts Jan. 2, 2014.

The city said Cvik's position will remain vacant so that Toye can participate in finding a candidate for that job.
