The Township of East Zorra-Tavistock Council and Staff are pleased to welcome Karen DePrest as our new Chief Administrative Officer (CAO). Karen joins the Township from the Municipality of Central Elgin, where she served as the Treasurer for several years. She brings with her a wealth of rural municipal government experience, which will be a strong benefit to the Township.
“On behalf of Council and Staff, we are pleased to welcome Karen to EZT! Her strong financial experience, along with her enthusiasm for local government, will be extremely beneficial assets for our team”, said Mayor Don McKay.
Karen is looking forward to exploring the community and meeting the residents and business owners in the Township. Once she is settled in after her first week, she will be out in the community to visit our municipal facilities with some of her team members.
“Feel free to pop by the municipal office and say ‘Hi’ if you are in or around Hickson”, she said. “In the meantime, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the opportunity that the residents, Staff and Council of East Zorra-Tavistock have given me by selecting me as their CAO. I think the future is bright in EZT and I’m looking forward to embracing it with the rest of the team.”
Karen’s first day at the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock was April 1, 2019.
