Updated Organizational Structure

Council directed the CAO on July 27, 2015 to immediately undertake a staff realignment and organizational review. The July 27, 2015 motion is attached.

A review of the Municipality’s current organizational structure has been completed; including careful consideration of our goals, and strategic objectives. This has included the realignment of functions and areas of services from one department to another department.

An updated organizational structure, effective September 10, 2015 has been developed and is attached. The new structure includes the reduction of the number of departments from six to four, and expanded functional departments which are:

  • Parks Recreation & Culture
  • Financial Services & Infrastructure Management
  • Development & Environmental Services
  • Legislative & Protective Services

The updated organizational structure includes the re-alignment of key service areas and staff positions within the four departments and reduces the number of full time staff positions to 59 from 61. As a result of re-organization, effective September 10, 2015, two full time positions are eliminated: Director of Operations, and Purchasing Agent.

Starting in 2016 the estimated annual net savings achieved from restructuring and staffing realignment applicable to the 2016 tax supported operating budget is $233,000.  Based on the 2015 budget $126,450 represents one percent on the tax levy.  $233,000 is approximately equivalent to a 1.76 percent adjustment based on the 2015 budget.
