I am not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but here goes...
I would appreciate any thoughts on the following:
When a municipal planner, the only planner on staff, retires or leaves his or her position:
1. Should he/she expect to be hired as a consultant to train the new planner, or
2 Should he/she be expected to leave everything well documented so that someone else can pick up where the retiring/leaving planner left off, or
3. is it the responsibility of the municipality to have the old and new planners overlap?
Or, is there another solution I missed? Just to be clear, the retiring/leaving planner is NOT me, and I do not work with him/her. This is really just a hypothetical question.
