The Delhi News-Record - - NEWS -

Nor­folk County made it of­fi­cial last week with the ap­point­ment of Chris Baird as the new gen­eral man­ager of pub­lic works and en­vi­ron­men­tal ser­vices. Baird is the county’s for­mer head of de­vel­op­ment and cul­tural ser­vices. He was named act­ing man­ager of pub­lic works this sum­mer fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of Lee Robin­son. Robin­son left the county in July for per­sonal rea­sons re­lated to fam­ily mat­ters. Baird comes full cir­cle with Nor­folk County with his new ap­point­ment. When the new Nor­folk came into be­ing in 2001, Baird was the county’s first roads man­ager. Baird’s ap­point­ment to the pub­lic works de­part­ment was an­nounced at the Aug. 28 meet­ing of Nor­folk coun­cil. “I take this very se­ri­ously,” Baird told coun­cil. “I look for­ward to serv­ing you and the res­i­dents of Nor­folk County.” With Baird en­sconced at pub­lic works, the county will ad­ver­tise for a new gen­eral man­ager of de­vel­op­ment and cul­tural ser­vices. This is a wide-rang­ing de­part­ment in­volv­ing over­sight of plan­ning, the build­ing divi­sion, by­law en­force­ment, tourism and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, and county mu­se­ums and archives.
