FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John has a new parks manager who took over for her predecessor Kylah Bryde.

Carrie Harder accepted the position in September and was formally introduced during a regular council meeting on Monday.

Harder has worked for the City in different capacities since 2016 after spending five years as the financial controller for a local oilfield maintenance company.

During her time with the City, she has worked as a cemetery clerk, and as an administrative assistant for Community Services and Parks.

Harder worked closely with Bryde on many projects before her departure, including policy development, scheduling, and developing procedures for the Parks team.

The City believes Harder is”highly organized and highly motivated to provide top notch services to the community.”

“She is well respected among her peers for her commitment to excellence and the support she brings to the Public Works Parks team,” said the letter introducing Harder.
