City of Revelstoke restructuring plan roles, staff changes

City plans to scale back bylaw enforcement, street cleaning, parks services and business sign subsidy

The City of Revelstoke has provided more information on the internal restructuring plan announced on June 5.

At city council’s June 11 meeting, chief administrative officer Tim Palmer outlined additional details of the restructuring plan.

The City plans to scale back the bylaw enforcement services provided by contractor Commissionaires, including reduced parking and animal control services.

Palmer said the city planned to be “more strategic on parking” enforcement. The details of the reduced animal control contract with Commissionaires will be negotiated in the coming months and will take effect in the late fall.

Several services will be trimmed back.

The plan calls for savings in the public works department, but only a few details were provided.

Palmer said that street sweeping will be reduced, although spring road clearing will remain because it is needed to prevent road sand clogging the sewers.

The framework also names planned reductions to parks services, but when questioned, city administrators didn’t yet have details on which services.

The city will end a $500 business sign subsidy program.

At city hall, about three staff positions will be eliminated. City administrators provided  ‘before and after’ organization charts. The new chart has 18 positions, while the old one had 21 (factoring in one ‘dual-role’ position).
