The city’s current director of development services, Corey Paiement, is moving to a new position in city hall.

Come March, Paiement will become the city’s corporate officer, so the city is now advertising for a new director of development services.

His new position includes many of the statutory duties of the municipality, explains Carl Bannister, the city’s chief administrative officer. “It used to be called city clerk… Any city the size of Salmon Arm will have a separate position for that and maybe two. So it’s all kinds of things: bylaws, administration, freedom of information inquiries, council meetings – keeping a record of all council meetings, elections, risk management (insurance claims). Those are just some of the main ones. It’s a long list.”

Applications for the director of development services job close on Jan. 7. The job description outlines it as “a significant public relations role in the community with responsibilities for the official community plan, as well as other major planning documents. As the approving officer, the incumbent is an independent decision-maker concerning subdivision applications. This senior management position is responsible for planning, bylaw enforcement and building department staff, including recruitment, training, performance assessment and motivation.”
