Mayor Charles Pender says there won’t be any more organizational shakeups at Corner Brook's city hall until at least after the consultant hired to conduct a review of the city’s organization and operations has completed its report.
The mayor made the comment in a Facebook posting Friday morning as part of his practice of providing regular updates on the progress of the review via social media.
He said the review being done by consultant KPMG is still on track to be done by early to mid-August. Pender thanked the public and staff for having input into the process and said council is optimistic the report will better position Corner Brook to more effectively deliver services to residents.
“Until this report is completed, council would like to assure residents and staff that there will be no further changes to the organizational structure,” posted Pender.
KPMG was retained after it was one of a dozen firms that responded to the City of Corner Brook’s request for proposals for the organizational and operational review in March. KPMG began its work April 7, outlining its approach for the review before consulting with city council, city staff and residents in late April.
The consultant has met with council and some city staff June 10 and June 24 to provide updates on the development of the final report.
