The Town of Stratford is a fast-growing community with more than 10,000 residents. “The town has grown more than 35 percent in the last 10 years,” says Robert Hughes.
There are about 27 permanent employees and a number of seasonal employees as well. The Recreation, Culture, and Events department has a Recreation Coordinator and a Program Coordinator.
The Infrastructure Department looks after water and sewer utilities, public works, buildings, grounds, sidewalks and trails. The department has an Infrastructure Manager, Infrastructure Coordinator, and Utility Operators.
The Finance and Administration Department has Accounting Clerks, and the Planning, Development, and Heritage Department has a Town Planner, Development Officer, and Building Inspector.
“For some speciality jobs such as Town Planner, there are fewer people in the talent pool to choose from, so we don’t get as many applications. But in general, we have not had much difficulty filling positions.”
