Administrative Capacity

The Importance of Administration

A municipality needs to be aware of the capacity of its municipal administration to provide council, residents, and businesses with accurate and reliable information to:

  • Fund and implement infrastructure required for growth;
  • Get borrowing in place; and 
  • Carry out responsibilities required by statute.

Meeting the challenges of growth requires a dedicated and professional municipal administration. It requires an administration that understands its strengths as well as its limitations. Municipalities require the human, technical and mechanical resources to operate on a daily basis and support council decisions with respect to planning for growth.
