with an anticipated start date of October or November 2017. The Summer Village owns a

supports), and an equipped 3 bay public works facility.

The suitable candidate should possess the following skills:

  • Experience in local government together with post-secondary education in a related discipline
    and/or certification in local government management. An equivalent combination of
    experience and education from other sectors may also be considered.
  • An understanding of Municipal Government Legislation, grant funding opportunities, business
    planning, municipal bookkeeping and budget procedures, and capital project management.
  • The ability to work collaboratively with Council to build the community effectively
  • represent the interests of the Summer Village of Sandy Beach.
  • The ability to work with, lead, support, and manage the performance of contractors as well as
    permanent and/or seasonal staff (as may be hired) who are responsible to meet the needs of
    the community with a high degree of personal initiative and independence.

The new Council will consider detailed contract proposals (including resume of contractor(s),
proposed number and scheduling of hours, and the detailed fee for service) for the provision of
required Administrative services. Alternatively, Council will also consider a negotiated offer of
employment with agreed salary and hours of work (which could be adjusted seasonally).
