Is the city going to hire a new Planner soon?

Burlington parted ways with Bruce Krushelnicki June 1st; the city has been without a planner ever since.
If Burlington really is the best mid-sized city in the country – would there not have been a lineup outside the Human Resources department of planners holding their resumes in their hands?

Apparently not – but there is a planner coming our way – expect an announcement soon soon.

And expect a bit of a surprise as well.

Male Roy

Roy Male – now playing gold full time.

With a Planner about to be announced – some comment should be made on the retirement of Roy Male, Executive Director of Human Resources since Moses parted the waters of the Jordan River.

Male appears to have decided that there was still time for some golf – and he wasn’t wrong on that issue – he did make some mistakes on the hires he made but he was a consistent advocate for attracting smart young people to the municipal sector.

Laura Boyd has been appointed to replace Roy Male. There are those at city hall who frown on appointments – and think every job opportunity should be posted.

We may be reading more about Boyd – she recently filled in for the City Manager at a meeting of Council.

Nice to see an improvement in the gender balance – it isn’t going to stop at Human Resources.
