WEYBURN – The City of Weyburn has announced the hiring of Mathew Warren as city manager.
Before accepting the role, Warren served as director of leisure services for the City of Weyburn for nine years. He was also appointed interim city manager after Roy Hardy’s departure in March.
As director of leisure services, Warren was involved in a number of facility projects including renovations to Crescent Point Place and Tom Zandee Sports Arena (2010-11), construction of Weyburn’s new outdoor pool (2010), the Young Fellows Paddling Pool (2016) and River Park Spray Park (2016).
Warren led development of Weyburn’s Leisure Facility Plan and is currently planning for the new Weyburn Recreation and Cultural Centre.
Warren brings 15 years of experience in different government roles with a focus on sports and recreation. Originally from Grenfell, Sask., Warren has called Weyburn home for nine years and lives there with his wife and three children.
“Weyburn is a great place to live and raise my family and I am thankful for the opportunity that city council has provided,” said Warren.
“Working as the acting city manager has been an enjoyable learning experience, working with all the city departments. I am looking forward to continuing to build a team environment within the City of Weyburn and with the city staff, council and the community in this new role.”
Councillor Jeff Richards stated, “Council is excited and confident as we move forward with Mathew Warren as our new city manager. Mathew brings over a decade of municipal management experience to the table and he is a long-term resident who values Weyburn as much as we do.”
