Starland County's Assistant CAO has now been appointed as the next CAO if the County.
"I have a lot of years into it already and I've always enjoy working at the county here. I'm excited to do so in a new capacity," stated newest CAO, Shirley Bremer.
"I have a lot of years under my belt already and I've had to deal with some of the stuff already. There will definitely be some new stuff thrown at me, but Starland County has been a big part of my life and I look forward to continuing that and sustaining the viability of it."
Shirley will succeed Ross Rawlusyk in this position and she already has some areas Bremer wants to work on.
"The first thing we need to address this years a decrease in our revenues due to the oil and gas industry. There will be some cutbacks or holding the line, someway to maintain a steady budget," Bremer noted.
"We do have some projects in the works already, so those will be priorities to be completed. Working with what we've got to complete what our vision is."
Starland County has been established as a pro-active green energy county and Bremer is looking forward to continuing that.
"Ourselves, we will continue to install solar as we can in any new projects and such. We like to incorporate that into it and try to do as much green energy as we can."
Shirley Bremer will become the fifth Starland County CAO since 1943.
