A key vacancy in City Hall’s senior management has been filled after a year long game of music chairs among the ranks. A few months ago, Kealy Dedman made the move to becoming Deputy CAO of Infrastructure, Development and Enterprise Services, which left her old position, City Engineer, vacant. But now Guelph’s got a new engineer.
The City of Guelph announced today that Terry Gayman, who’s worked at the City of Guelph since 2014, will now serve as the General Manager of Engineering and Transportation Services and City Engineer, to use the full, technical title.
Gayman has been the acting general manager since August when Dedman was promoted to the Deputy Chief Administrative Officer position.
“After a search that had us interviewing both internal and external candidates, we’re confident we’ve found the best person to fill this role,” said Dedman in that media release. “Terry has been with the City for five years and has shown great leadership on key City projects including the implementation of the stormwater service fee and management of the environmental investigation of the IMICo property to support its redevelopment.”
Gayman has been the Manager of Infrastructure, Development and Environmental Engineering since December 2014. Before that, he worked for over eight years at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates, an environmental services company in Waterloo.
Speaking of engineering, a small matter of engineering will be discussed next week at City Hall, the plans for the leash-free area at the Bristol Street Park.
If you would like to see the plans, ask some questions, or just learn more about the timetable for the proposed project, you’re invited to the Open House on Wednesday November 20 at 6:30 pm in the Marg McKinnon Room at City Hall.
