Council Update – April 23, 2019

At this week’s Council meeting, Council reviewed the recommendation from the Sport Plan for the hiring of a Sport Development Officer. The Sport Plan was developed in 2015 at the beginning of last term for the purpose of “increasing participation in sport through the provision of a safe, supportive and inclusive sport environment.” Recognizing the important role that sport plays in building community vitality, this Council is building on the work of the previous Council by implementing important elements of the Sport Plan – including the provision of a Sport Development Officer.

The role of the Sport Development officer will be to not only develop deliverables of the Sport Plan, but to work with ALL our sports organizations to ensure that their needs and wants are being addressed and that the identified goals will be realistic, achievable and efficient

Council approved the position, but on a contract basis only, for a term of 24 months.

I am looking forward to our Town continuing the work of the Sport Plan and working together with ALL of our sport organizations to get things done.
