Continued Recruitment Underway

We continue to work on filling two vacancies in Building Services:

Interim Support

We recognize how important and necessary building inspection services is to our community –especially given this busy time for construction and that’s why we are doing everything in our power to fill these positions as soon as we can.

Megan Mucignat from McElhanney Consulting is assisting with planning applications this week. 

We have enlisted the services of a recruiting firm to get the best person for the position.

We have secured other options to help provide building inspection services in the short term including getting some hands-on help from another municipality and/or assistance from a private firm that offers building inspection and plan review services.

We are in the process of reviewing applications received to date. This can take a few weeks and an exact start date is unknown at this time.

We have updated contractors by email and have started to book inspections for this week.

Sign up at the front counter and we’ll send you an email as we know more, including when we will be able to start taking additional appointments for inspections. We will also be posting this on our Facebook page.
