Grand Forks City Council is pleased to confirm the appointment of Duncan Redfearn to the position of Chief Administrative Officer effective March 16, 2020.

Redfearn moved to Dawson Creek during his hockey days, established himself in the community, and joined the municipal government in 2008 where his career progressed until becoming the Chief Administrative Officer three years ago.

In making the move to Grand Forks, he says “I am looking forward to this very exciting opportunity to return to Grand Forks and work with such a forward-thinking Mayor and Council, and the amazing staff at the City.”

The search for Grand Forks’ next CAO began in November under the guidance of Interim CAO Ron Mattiussi and saw significant interest from around the country and even internationally. 

Council interviewed a short list of candidates in January resulting in the confirmation of Mr. Redfearn’s appointment earlier this week

Mayor Brian Taylor noted that “Council interviewed a very good slate of candidates for the position.  We are confident that Mr. Redfearn will be an excellent fit to the community, and we look forward to his joining the team in March.”
