TRANSPORTATION AUDIT
COUNTY LOOKS AT FIXING HOLES FOUND IN REPORT

An independent study completed this past year took a critical look at policies, practices, and planning for the county’s department that manages its 2,300 kms. of paved and gravel roads.
The report looked at current practices, interviewed staff and council, and looked at municipalities of similar sizes for comparison.
The report concluded that “there are a number of issues that exist with the structure and processes of the Transportation Function.”
Yellowhead County will be acting on the recommendations made in the report to deal with communications issues, inspection schedules, organizational and staffing issues, and other concerns..

 

 

Strategic Value Services was hired to complete a Transportation Organizational Review and Operations Audit for Yellowhead County. SVS’s report included an assessment of the current organizational structure, proposed changes to maintenance standards where necessary, and looked to see if current staffing levels were appropriate. SVS also provided recommendations on internal communications and reporting; as well as how residential input and feedback is addressed. Most of the recommendations made by SVS will begin in 2013 as they will have to included in next year’s budget, but planning on some of the recommendations can begin immediately.
