Former Gimli mayor lands job as municipal bylaw enforcement officer
Former Gimli mayor Randy Woroniuk has been approved as the municipality's new bylaw enforcement officer.
Randy Woroniuk, the former mayor of Gimli, has landed a job with the municipality, after council voted to select him for the position of bylaw enforcement officer.
Three people were interviewed for the position, explained Coun. Peter Holfeuer, who sat in on the interviews, as chairman of council’s public safety portfolio. He says Woroniuk rose to the top.
Holfeuer says Woroniuk’s prior enforcement position as a now-retired, long-time natural resources officer “really set him part” for the vacant position.
“He came in strongest of the three,” the first-term councillor said during a regular council meeting Feb. 27. “I think we made a good decision — and look forward to working with Randy.”
Holfeuer said that bylaw enforcement will remain a largely complaint-driven process.
“However, I would recommend is that there is some proactive enforcement,” he added.
Deputy mayor Richard Petrowski, who chaired the recent meeting in the absence of Mayor Lynn Greenberg, and Coun. Thora Palson agreed.
“It worked out very well,” Petrowski said of the selection.
