Estevan Mayor Roy Ludwig confirmed Thursday that there will be some internal movement among city staff following the departure of the City's Manager of Leisure Services, Parks and Facilities Rod March.

March is moving to Alberta after nine years with the City of Estevan.

"Rod did a great job for us. He absolutely will be missed," said Ludwig. "He had a broad spectrum of expertise. He was good at landscaping, trees, buildings, parks. I mean you name it, he had experience and expertise in it. And he really did move us forward. The pathway, he helped plan that, helped build it, helped look after it. That was one of our biggest things that we've done in the last few years as a council."

"Basically Rod was good at everything that he tackled and we were so happy to have him, and he will be missed."

Ludwig said there are some internal candidates who are in the running to take over March's position.

"There's restructuring going on. We've got some movement going on, we've got some people moving around and people moving up to deal with that," he said. "We've got some internal shuffling and moving around that will be taking place."

Ludwig added that March moved around a lot during his career with his wife and family.

"Like an army personnel, he's moved. I think they said he's moved eight times in his career. That's a lot," Ludwig said.

March is heading to Okotoks, Alberta to be in charge of parks. His last day with the City is Friday.
