Kawartha Lakes appoints new Manager, Municipal Law Enforcement

January 15, 2015 - Long-time City municipal law enforcement officer Aaron Sloan has been promoted to Manager, Municipal Law Enforcement. Mr. Sloan takes over for Gord Garfield who retired in December.

“Aaron has shown himself as a leader with his exemplary conduct and professionalism,” said Director of Development Services Ron Taylor. “Aaron participated in the city’s succession planning program in advance of this opportunity to lead the Municipal Law Enforcement Office, and we are very fortunate to have someone of Aaron’s experience and dedication assuming this role.”

Mr. Sloan has been a Municipal Law Enforcement Officer with the City since 2001 and has taken numerous courses over the past 12 years to continue to build upon his skills, knowledge and professional duties.

“This opportunity is certainly something I have been working towards and I am fortunate to have had someone as skilled and qualified as Gord Garfield to learn and be mentored by,” said Mr. Sloan. “We have a great team of staff in our bylaw department and I am looking forward to continuing the positive relationship we’ve enjoyed while working to serve the residents of Kawartha Lakes.”

Born and raised in Lindsay, Mr. Sloan said he is excited for the opportunity to continue to work with and be engaged in the community.

“I will be looking at a number of items within the municipal law enforcement office including creating more outreach and opportunity for discussion with the community,” he said. “We want to ensure that we are providing a valuable service to our community and working with residents to deliver results.”

The Municipal Law Enforcement Division is responsible for the investigation and enforcement of the City’s By-Laws including parking enforcement, dog control and general bylaw enforcement.

“One of the concerns we have consistently heard from residents is the inability for our snowplow operators to do their jobs when motorists park their vehicles on Lindsay streets during winter snow events,” Mr. Sloan pointed out. “That will certainly be one of the first things we begin to address over the coming weeks.”
