Municipal Departments

The Operational Structure responsible for implementing the services defined by Council. Our operational business model is divided into four areas: a permanent workforce, contractual services, shared services, and a seasonal workforce. Town services are accomplished through a combination of these vital resources.

As the operational head of the municipality, the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) has the primary responsibility for implementing Council’s direction and policy; informing council on the affairs of the municipality; managing the organization; and performing any other functions that Council or the Municipal Government Act delegates to him. The CAO utilizes a management team structure to provide administrative leadership for the organization.

The Town is divided into 5 strategic groupings of municipal staff and responsibilities. The CAO is the common thread between these strategic service areas. The intent of this structure is to engage a larger number of technically skilled individuals enhancing the Town’s ability to provide quality programs and services. Please click the tabs above for information on each department. 

Chief Administrative Officer

Every council must establish, by bylaw, a position of CAO. The council may give the position an appropriate title, such as Town Manager or Administrator.

The CAO is the administrative head of the municipality.

The CAO’s responsibilities include:

  • ensuring that the municipality’s policies and programs are implemented
  • advising and informing the council on the operation of the municipality
  • performing other duties assigned by the council
  • ensuring appropriate staffing is in place

Councillors work with the CAO to keep informed on what the municipality is doing and will depend on the administration to provide information so they can make sound decisions.
