budget shortfall for 2015 and an increase in taxes to local ratepayers to go with it, City Council it would seem is still moving forward with plans to add to the staffing levels at City Hall.
Yesterday, we outlined how the City Council had hired on Dr. Barb Faggetter to be the city's "resident scientist" with duties it would appear mostly related to efforts from the Lot 444 proposal for an LNG development on Tuck Inlet.
However, Dr. Faggetter won't be the only new face to be found at City Hall in the weeks to come.
The City has recently posted a job opportunity, looking to provide some assistance to City Planner Zeno Krekic, with the search now on for a Junior Planner for the city.
The advertisement outlines the current pressures that the City is experiencing in the planning department, highlighting the volume of land use applications and need for reports and field work required to process the city's work.
A fairly lengthy list of major responsibilities is also offered up for consideration, a few of those include work related to reports on planning applications and recommendations for Council's consideration, liaison with other government agencies and departments as well as the ability to conduct research, inventories and special projects.
The successful applicant will also be expected to attend Council meetings to provide information on planning matters where required.
The full list of responsibilities and qualifications can be found here.
The deadline for applicants to have they resume in is April 17th.
