Plympton-Wyoming and two of its top administrative officers have parted ways.

Fire Chief Darryl Thompson was placed on administrative leave and Chief Administrative Officer Carolyn Tripp went off on sick leave in mid February.

Fire Chief Darryl Thompson on the top left and CAO Carolyn Tripp, seated beside Mayor Gary Atkinson in this photo at the inauguration of council in December, are no longer with the town.

Council has met behind closed doors dealing with personnel and legal issues nearly a dozen times since then, however Mayor Gary Atkinson has declined to comment on what prompted Thompson’s administrative leave nor the investigation which the town undertook into the incident.

The Independent has learned employees were told today the pair no longer work for the municipality and any questions from the public about their departures should to the Deputy CAO Norma Roddick-Preece since it is a confidential personnel matter.

More to come ….
