The Saskatchewan government has appointed Vern Palmer, a retired rural administrator, to supervise the operations of the RM of McKillop for one year.
Government relations minister Warren Kaeding says Palmer will oversee progress on recommendations from a recent inspector’s report on the RM.
Kaeding says Palmer brings 35 years of municipal experience to his role as supervisor.
Kaeding says Palmer will assist with a new utility rate bylaw for residents of Sun Dale, follow through on referendums for boundary changes and complete a financial audit.
He will also look at exploring authorities for resort communities.
In August, Kaeding announced an inspection for the RM of McKillop, about 80 kilometers northwest of Regina, following threats of a taxpayer revolt.
