Niagara Region Appoints Acting Commissioner of Public Works
Regional Council has approved the temporary appointment of Dan Carnegie as Niagara Region’s Acting Commissioner of Public Works. Carnegie will serve as the Acting Commissioner while the recruitment process for a permanent Commissioner of Public Works is underway.
Carnegie has spent more than 30 years in the public sector holding positions with Toronto Hydro, the Town of Oakville, the City of Oshawa and most recently with the City of St. Catharines as their Chief Administrative Officer from 2014 to 2017.
Bringing in an individual from outside the organization to fill the Commissioner role temporarily allows existing directors within Public Works to focus on their respective roles while also allowing the Region to leverage the experience and counsel of a senior leader well versed in the operations of municipal government.
Niagara Region’s Public Works Department is responsible for the delivery of waste management, transportation and water and waste water services.
