City of Wetaskiwin fire chief no longer employed there

Leigh Sawicki was director of emergency services for five years

A second top person in the City of Wetaskiwin’s leadership is no longer employed by the municipality in a few weeks.

The City of Wetaskiwin confirmed Dec. 10 that Director of Protective Services Leigh Sawicki is no longer employed by the municipality.

“We can confirm that Leigh Sawicki is no longer employed with the City of Wetaskiwin, but cannot comment further as personnel changes are confidential,” stated communications coordinator Ren Goode in an email Dec. 10.

The Pipestone Flyer received an anonymous message earlier that day noting the city and its fire chief had parted ways.

Sawicki’s LinkedIn profile states he had been in the city’s director position since December, 2013.

On Nov. 21 the City of Wetaskiwin stated it had terminated the employment of city manager Dave Burgess “with cause.”

In the file photo, Sawicki is in front row to the right of the certificate held by former mayor Bill Elliot.
