The Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) is charged with the responsibility of coordinating the work of all municipal departments and ensuring that those departments carry out the policies and directions given by City Council.
The CAO oversees the day-to-day operations of the City through nine Department Heads and co-ordinates the administrative interaction with various operating agencies such as Police Services, the Public Library, the EDC and the Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority.
Recommending current and capital budgets, approving items for Council Agendas (both open and caucus) and personnel matters are the responsibility of the CAO.
The City's Strategic Plan is also under the direction of the CAO.
