Lethbridge has hired a new City Manager. After signing a five-year contract with the city, Lloyd Brierley officially stepped into the role. Brierley has been Director of Infrastructure since last fall, but before coming to Lethbridge, he worked as a General Manager of Fleet Services in Toronto. He says he is proud to now call Lethbridge home.
“I genuinely enjoy living here and don’t have any plans on leaving and as far as sights set on future, it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet,” said Lloyd Brierley, new City Manager of Lethbridge. “There is already a lot of great building blocks like councils action plan, corporate strategic plan, municipal development plan in place, and the steady hand of the tailored type of approach I think is really important.”
Lethbridge Mayor Blaine Hyggen says he is really confident in Brierley’s abilities and his past experience is what stood out for him. The city was looking for a new city manager after Craig Dalton announced his decision to resign last fall.
“Just the wealth of knowledge that be brings from different levels of government and being able to be here in Lethbridge and his passion for the community really stood out to I know myself so we can hit the ground running,” said Blaine Hyggen, Mayor of Lethbridge. “This is something that was important I think for us and the community for that matter.”
