The County of Grande Prairie is creating a Corporate Services division, which will include it’s Assessment, Finance, Systems, and Legislative Services departments. The change was originally recommended through a study done for the County back in 2009. But CAO Bill Rogan says the recent retirement of some senior staff gave them look at it again and act on the proposal.
“We looked again at what those recommendations were in that 2009 study, and just thought it was time given the growth in the organization over the last few years.”
The changes also include the creation of a Operations Manager position in the Public Works department. Rogan hopes to have the two new positions, as well as their Director of Planning posting, all filled by August.
