Town 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 4 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.

Corporate Services

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) assists and advises the CAO in the overall planning, coordination and control of all municipal financial management in accordance with the objectives, policies and plans approved by Council. The CFO leads the Town of Raymond’s Corporate Services Department and ensures the administrative and financial requirements are met and that they compliance with applicable statutory regulations.
