As part of the preliminary stage of selecting a new city manager, City Council members invite interested Lethbridge residents and organizations to offer their input to aid in the development of a City Manager job profile.
Residents can submit online or written submissions from now until Friday, January 19, or they can share their comments in person with City Council members at a special Community Issues Committee (CIC) meeting on Monday, January 15.
"Choosing a city manager is one of the most important decisions we will make as City Council. We want to make sure we consider perspectives from our community as we develop an updated job profile for this position," says Councillor Jeffrey Coffman, chairperson of the City Manager Search Committee.
Forms for written submissions are available from the Office of the City Clerk on the second floor of City Hall, and online submissions can be made at www.lethbridge.ca/CMinput. The CIC meeting is scheduled January 15 at 4 p.m. in Council Chambers on the main floor of City Hall. Any request to present will be accommodated at this meeting, and presenters will be allotted up to five minutes each. Presenters will be required to provide their names, and CIC members may pose clarifying questions to presenters, if necessary.
The search committee also includes Mayor Chris Spearman as well as Councillors Belinda Crowson and Joe Mauro. Former City Manager Garth Sherwin retired as of January 3, 2018, and Kathy Hopkins is serving as interim City Manager until Council completes its recruitment process and names a permanent replacement, likely in the spring of 2018.
