The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) presented the outcomes of its two-phased organizational structure review at its council meeting on July 17.
Phase two of the review will see the elimination of three staff positions and the reclassification of four positions to lower pay scales.This follows changes in Phase I announced in February 2012, when the total number of divisions and general managers in the organization was reduced from five to three.
According to a just released press notice the organizational structure review changes in both phases will result in an estimated annual savings of a half-million dollars for the organization.
The review was led by Chief Administrative Officer Mike Furey, who engaged all managers in the phase two work. The focus was on changes that will produce annual savings. Reductions in staff have been realized through the most cost effective manner with the least impact on operations and services.
More to come.
