After seven years with Norfolk County, Andy Grozelle is leaving his position as County Clerk.

Grozelle is responsible for the Clerks and By-Law department that provides a wide range of services to Council, the public and County staff, including advising Council on legislative matters, recording Council minutes and decisions, ensuring the public has access to municipal records, and administering elections.

“It has been a great honour to serve the residents of Norfolk and their elected Councils,” says Grozelle. “An announcement from my future employer will be made shortly, I can relay at this time that I am taking on a larger leadership role and that I will fondly look back at my time as a municipal clerk.”

“I’d like to thank Andy for his service to Norfolk County, particularly over the last two years,” says Mayor Kristal Chopp. “The guidance he provided to Council – specifically the new faces around the table – has been important and appreciated.”

“Andy has been a key part of the Norfolk County team and we’re disappointed to see him go,” says CAO Jason Burgess. “On behalf of everyone here at the County, I wish him the best of luck in this next chapter of his career.”

Deputy Clerk Kevin Klingenberg will serve as clerk for upcoming meetings of Council.

Grozelle’s last day with Norfolk County will be Feb. 26.

The County will launch a search for a candidate to fill the County Clerk position – which every municipality must have as per Provincial legislation – shortly.
