^ Job posting says it's the result of a retirement, so either a replacement of the same position or CoV is using the opportunity to do a little restructuring.

 

FWIW, it's likely that the GM is the head honcho and the Directors report to the GM, not the other way around. That's how it is in Richmond, at least. One GM of Planning and Development, and then four Directors: Engineering, Development, Transportation, and Building Approvals.

In Victoria, the structure is as follows for staff (most departments have a similar structure):

 

City Manager

  v

Director of Engineering & Public Works (Fraser Work)

  v

Assistant Director, Public Works (Ed Robertson)

  v

4-5 Managers of various departments (i.e.: Parking, Utilities, Transportation Design, etc.)

 

The job description doesn't match up to this structure very well, so curious if it's actually Ed Robertson that's retiring as Assistant Director, and the "Head of Public Works" is replacing that role. As far as I'm aware, Fraser Work is hanging around.

How on earth does he manage to do that job as well as lead the Barenaked Ladies?

Of late, they have been changing from assistant director to Head.

They felt having Assistant Director Public Works would lead others to ask, "Well who is the Director of Public Works then?"

Source, I work there.

And yes, its a retirement replacement.
