City launches search for new community development co-ordinator

The City of Brandon is seeking a new community development co-ordinator.

The long-existing position opened up after incumbent Hope Roberts moved on from the city in the fall.

“Hope was in charge of a variety of community programming and played a key liaising role with community groups like the Lieutenant Governor’s Winter Festival, the Multicultural Festival, Culture Days, the Global Market, Westman Immigrant Services and the Brandon Race Relations Network, among many others,” Allison Collins, the city’s director of communications, said via email.

The purpose of the position is also to act as a catalyst in developing the community by seeking partnership and funding opportunities, developing and delivering independent services, events and or initiatives along with managing partnership agreements and working alongside community groups.

The job posting and description can be viewed online by visiting the City of Brandon website, brandon.ca. Applications are being accepted until 4 p.m. on Jan. 20.

Hiring an affordable housing specialist will also be discussed during city council’s two-day 2014 budget deliberations on Friday and Saturday.

The city is proposing a tax hike of 2.85 per cent over last year, which would bring in an additional $1.1 million. Complete budget documents can be downloaded from the city website.

Hiring an affordable housing specialist is a new addition to the 2014 budget. In November, council was presented with the city’s affordable housing strategy, which includes 11 strategies and 81 action items to deal with the growing housing concern in Brandon.

Administration would like to see a new staff member focused solely on the housing strategy.
