SYDNEY - The Sydney Tar Ponds Agency is losing its lone communications officer less than two months after severing ties with its director of communications.

John Chesal said he was unable to come to an agreement with the agency over what the appropriate salary level would be for his added responsibilities. "It was clear we were far apart," he said. Chesal was hired in February 2006. His final day hasnít been determined but he will likely leave near the end of May.

Former director of communications Parker Donham was abruptly let go in March in what the agency called a restructuring.
