Municipal Departments

Who works for the Town and how things get done is broken down into four areas: a permanent workforce, contractual services, shared services, and a seasonal workforce. 

Chief Administrative Officer

Every council must establish, by bylaw, a Chief Administrative Officer (CAO). The CAO is Council’s only employee and acts as the operational head of the Town and is responsible for:
1. Carrying out Council’s strategic direction and policies;
2. Keeping Council up to date with what is happening in the community;
3. Managing staff resources and relationships; and
4. Any other function that Council or the Municipal Government Act delegates to the CAO.

The CAO has divided staff into 4 departments, led by a department director. Our directors are experts in their fields and work with a larger number of technically, skilled individuals whose job it is to make sure that our facilities, infrastructure, and services are maintained and delivered at the highest level possible with the resources they are given.

The current organizational structure can be found here.
