The City of Lethbridge uses the council-manager form of city government, meaning council makes laws and broad policy decisions for a city manager and staff to carry out.

Like a private sector CEO does for their company, a city manager oversees the day-to-day operations of a city and serves as the chief adviser to council.

Today, during the regular weekly Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs session, set for noon at the Royal Canadian Legion, speaker Bramwell Strain, who has been the Lethbridge city manager since August, will present “The First 100 Days as City Manager: Expectations, Observations and Surprises – What are the Key Issues Going Forward?”

Strain will describe his experience in Lethbridge so far, followed by an outline of his immediate and future priorities as well as his vision for the City of Lethbridge.

Prior to becoming city manager in Lethbridge, he served as a deputy minister in the Government of Manitoba in the ministries of infrastructure as well as education, training and immigration. Strain also has a background with the federal government, serving as Assistant Deputy Minister for Western Economic Diversification.
