Troy Fleming has accepted the city's new manager position.
 
Fleming had a bit of a leg up on the competition, as he's served as the interim manager since December of 2016. He's also been with the city for five years, allowing him inside knowledge on the operations and relationships with key stakeholders in the region.
 
"It feels good, I'm really happy with the support I've received from council for the hiring and I plan to work hard to make sure I do right by council and the citizens of Fort Saskatchewan," commented Fleming.
 
He added that his main focus is pulling off the election and aquatics question smoothly; from there, Fleming will focus on ensuring the new council is properly trained and orientated as a group.
 
Council commented that Fleming brings to the table exactly what the city needs—big city vision with a grassroots connection.
 
Flemming was one of three finalists.
 
He replaces Kelly Kloss, who left the job in early January to take the role of director of development services for the City of Red Deer.
