Community Services Review Proves Beneficial


As part of the 2018 Red Deer County strategic plan, various departments are undergoing service level reviews. The purpose of the reviews is to gain insight into the quantity and quality of services performed by a County departments as compared to similar departments in other Counties around Alberta.

Community Services performs important functions that increase the quality of life of County residents. Their functions include transit management, recreation, family and community support services (FCSS), heritage management, facility grants, libraries and cemeteries.

The County compared Red Deer County Community Services with municipalities similar in land base, land use, population and overall resources. After extensive research, Council found the results to be very positive.

Mayor Jim Wood commented, “We are always looking to be a leader in providing services to our businesses and residents. This process ensures that we are among the best counties in the Province to live, work, and grow. I am fully confident that our Community Services department are providing a top-notch group of services to our residents.”

According to Community Services Manager Jo-Ann Symington, “By comparing services and program delivery to similar municipalities, we can determine if we are providing a leading level of service to our ratepayers. The process was a great confirmation in the direction we are heading with the new Community Services strategic plan approved by Council.”

Red Deer County has determined to undertake reviews of several other departments over the coming year. Stay tuned for more information on this program as results become available.
