And it's all hands on deck for City Staff
Mr. Mandryk took his place around the Council table for the first time at Tuesday's session, his hiring was announced back in September.
There wasn't much background regarding his arrival provided by the Mayor's short introduction at the start of the Council session on Tuesday. Leaving us to await the official notice to be posted to the City's website where perhaps a snippet of his resume may be provided for our review.
He made his first contribution at his new job, with his overview of a request that Council accept a recommendation to seek out a Grant Application for a Grant towards the Airport Loan proposal.

With the arrival of Mr. Mandryk, the City has filled all three of its upper management positions in 2013, earlier in the year, the City welcomed it's new City Manager, Mr. Robert Long and in September confirmed the appointment of Ms. Corinne Bomben as the City's Financial Officer.
With the senior positions now filled, Council will turn it's attention to the latest opening, that of the need for a new Economic Development Officer for Prince Rupert and Port Edward.
