Long-awaited management review released

Fewer managers, a non-profit museum and sharing services with the regional district are among the recommendations.

Fewer managers, a non-profit museum and sharing services with the regional district are among the recommendations in the City of Port Alberni organization and compensation review, released last week.

Commissioned by council in 2015, the report was carried out by former City of Vancouver manager Judy Rogers.

The report contained seven recommendations, including shrinking the number of department heads reporting to the city manager from nine to five. The five new departments would be corporate administration, financial services, community services, engineering and public works and city services.

Changes already implemented include moving former city manager Ken Watson to the role of senior projects advisor and former corporate services director Theresa Kingston to community services.

Rogers recommends sharing services such as recreation and parks, bylaw enforcement, accounting and payroll and protective services with the regional district.
