A “Re-aligned” City Hall
In August, Council approved a new organizational structure at City Hall. The new structure will help deal with several challenges facing the City including financial realities, a changing legislative landscape and providing an effective response to the service expectations of our citizens. The goal is to establish the City of Saint John as a service based, results oriented, high performance public service organization.
There are four citizen-facing units:
• Growth and Development – growth and planning, permitting, bylaw and inspections, development support and geographic information systems services
• Urban Environment – neighbourhood improvement, recreation and cultural programming, fire and rescue and emergency management services
• Transportation and Environment – roadway maintenance, sidewalk maintenance, pedestrian and traffic management, stormwater management, solid waste collection, transportation and environmental engineering and parks and public spaces services
• Saint John Water – drinking water, industrial water, wastewater, and water and sanitary engineering services
There are two enabling units:
• Strategic – human resources, corporate planning, intergovernmental affairs, communications and information technology systems services
• Financial/Administrative – finance and asset management services
The appointments of the six commissioners who will oversee each unit are pending. The implementation of the new structure will be initiated over the next six months.
When the Saint John Sea Dogs won the Memorial Cup in 2011, they joined an exclusive club with players from the Calder Cup victory in 2001, the Saint John Vito’s 1992 Allan Cup victory and the Hardy Cup- winning Saint John Mooseheads of 1973.
