Blackfalds, Alberta (January 19, 2022)– After 17 years of working with the Town of Blackfalds as the Director of Community Services, Sean Barnes will be hanging up his hat and focusing on new opportunities within the community.Director Barnes played a key role in making Blackfalds what it is today by being innovative and forward-thinking and achieved bringing various recreational amenities to town such as the Bike Skills Park, the Abbey Centre, the Eagle Builders Centre, themed playgrounds, and trails connecting the TransCanada Trail to Lacombe and Red Deer. He and his staff also brought some incredible events including Winterfest, Blackfalds Days, and Light Up Blackfalds to the community.Chief Administrative Officer Myron Thompson shared that Sean Barnes’“commitment, successes and achievements enjoyed by residents and visitors alike have helped make Blackfalds the ‘community of choice.’”“Sean was responsible for many projects that are considered legacy projects and the results of those are recognized by our staff and residents and are especially valued by the sport and recreation industries. Sean’s work ethic, dedication, and sense of humour made the organization and community a better place to work and live. On behalf of myself and employees of the municipality, we wish him the best of luck,” he added.Mayor Jamie Hoover shared similar sentiments, commenting that Sean played an integral part in the substantial growth of Blackfalds in the 17 years he was with the Town. “His enthusiasm and energy will certainly be missed, and he leaves some big shoes to fill for whoever is his successor,” Mayor Hoover said. “Council and I wish him well in his next chapter."Barnes will continue to work for the Town on a contract basis spearheading capital projects and events. The recruitment process for the Director of Community Services replacement has commenced, with the position anticipated to be filled by late February 2022.“I am so proud of my staff in Community Services and the wonderful work that they have accomplished in the past years. Together we helped to improve the quality of life in Blackfalds, and it has been an absolute pleasure to serve this community,” shared Barnes.Formoreinformation:Jamie HooverMayor403.email@example.comMyron ThompsonCAO firstname.lastname@example.org
