City Council appoints interim city manager and Lethbridge Public Library gets 90K boost for security

January 13, 2020

Lethbridge City Council had their first meeting of 2020.

City Council has appointed Jody Meli as Interim City Manager, effective immediately.

Meli has more than 35 years of experience in municipal government, including more than five years at the senior management level, most recently as the Director of the City Manager’s Office.

Council also approved an increase of $90,000 per year until 2021 to enhance safety and security at the Lethbridge Public Library’s main branch.

Following an internal assessment of staff, customer feedback and consultation with a number of other public libraries, LPL chief executive officer, Terra Plato, says the changes to the security model made to date have had a positive impact.
