Organizational restructuring at City of Lethbridge leads to cuts of 61 full time equivalent positions

LETHBRIDGE, AB – In an effort to save money and operate as efficiently as possible, the City of Lethbridge is cutting 61 full-time equivalent positions.

This restructuring opportunity was identified in a recent city-wide review. Thirty-five departments are being consolidated and about half the positions being eliminated were already being kept vacant during the pandemic.

The move is expected to save about $4.3-million annually.

The City stresses that it’s monitoring the reductions closely to mitigate any interruptions and residents shouldn’t notice any service changes.

Mayor Chris Spearman says “these types of initiatives are never easy” and difficult for all those involved but he notes that this “is critical work…. to be as agile as possible coming out of the pandemic.”

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
