Mercier is coming off of serving 12 years as the CAO for Woodlands County. MD Reeve Greg Sawchuk says Mercier has the experience council was looking for.
” Mr. Mercier has a vast amount of experience, with 24 years working in municipalities
across Alberta, 12 of those as a CAO. His extensive skills have been recognized by the Alberta
government as he was a member of the provincial committee making changes to industrial
assessment. Luc is well respected in the Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) association as well.”
