Vadeboncoeur was the town’s CAO until he retired in August, after working for the municipality for nearly 13 years.

Vadeboncoeur’s retirement prompted Marshall to step down from his posts as both mayor of Penetanguishene and warden of Simcoe County to take the interim postion, which he held until this week.

According to the release, Vadeboncoeur is “delighted” to be returning to Wasaga Beach.

“Together we had accomplished so much as an organization and look forward to the exciting task ahead,” he said in the release. “I am particularly pleased about being able to work with the dedicated staff at the Town of Wasaga Beach.”

He will provide important leadership at the staff level, as well as support to the newly elected council.”
