Mandate and Mission
The Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) is a key point of contact between Council, staff and the community at large. The CAO monitors trends and uses community input to make sure communication is clear. The CAO works to build and maintain a vibrant quality of life for residents and ratepayers and to deliver quality services. In turn, the CAO communicates vision, leadership and direction to staff to ensure Council-set goals and priorities are met. Enthusiasm and cooperation from the Staff Management Team is vital in meeting the CAO's mandate. Council's ambitious Strategic Plan cannot be realized without the enthusiasm and cooperation from the Management Team and all Town staff. The function of the CAO is to ensure that Council's direction for the organization and the community once set is clearly communicated and followed through given the resources available.
By listening to our residents, and in collaboratin with our neighbours, we provide efficient and effective services to our residents, leading Parry Sound to a prosperous, healthy future.
