Sheegl resigns from boards as city's representative

Phil Sheegl no longer is the city’s representative to several organizations, including the body that oversaw the construction of the new football stadium.

A motion from council this morning to remove Sheegl, the former City CAO who was forced to quit last week in advance of a damning report on the fire-paramedic station construction program, from several boards was rendered unnecessary when Mayor Sam Katz said Sheegl had resigned from the organizations.

Sheegl was chair of BBB Stadium Inc, the non-profit group that oversaw the construction of Investors Group Field, and sat on several other bodies -- the Bombers’ board, the RBC Convention Centre, the Civic Employees Benefits program, and the Winnipeg Police Pension Board – and remained the city’s representative even he though he quit his post last week.

Katz said he had phoned Sheegl Tuesday night and suggested he should resign.

"He slept on it and sent me an email this morning," that he was resigning from all the boards, Katz told reporters.
