Corporate Governance Review

Corporate Governance Review

In mid-June 2021, Beaver County Council expressed a desire to review their performance during their term of office (November 2017 – October 2021).  The last review conducted by Council was in 2009.

An independent consultant, Rick McDonald of J.R. McDonald & Associates Inc., was hired to review the legislative and administrative functioning and organizational design of the County and ensure that Council is achieving its outcomes as directed by County policy and/or required under the Municipal Government Act.

To facilitate the review, Mr. McDonald assessed the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations of the County by conducting interviews with Council, staff, municipal stakeholders and the public, and observing Council meetings.

The Corporate Governance Review was approved by Council on October 6, 2021.  Mr. McDonald has recently been hired by Council as the interim CAO and to implement the recommendations in the report.
