94.1 FM News reports that the head of Saint John’s planning department will be leaving for a new job in Fredericton in the new year.
Hopefully an urban focussed urban planning team leader fills the role and implements the new planning and zoning priorities of Saint John.
The hiring process for filling the top planning job will be a good test for the new council. Will they hire a high-paid consulting firm to search high and low and hire someone in house? If there is someone in house that is right for the job, is there a way to skip the high-paid HR consultant part of the equation?
