The Essex Region Conservation Authority has selected Tim Byrne for the position of CAO/Secretary-Treasurer.

Byrne has served in this interim role since September, and will officially take on the permanent role effective February 1st.

“As a Board, we anticipate that ERCA will need to lean heavily on Tim’s 35 years of experience as well as his practical expertise in the regulatory environment as we respond to the impacts of Bill 229,” said Tania Jobin, ERCA Chair. “The recent changes to the Conservation Authorities Act will require a transition plan and municipal agreements, and the Board will be relying on Tim to collaboratively steer the organization through this next phase.”

Last week, Byrne was recognized for 35 years of service to the ERCA. Formerly the Director of Watershed Management Services, he has been responsible for implementing guidelines and policies that impact the way Conservation Authorities do business across the province, and has been key in helping to manage flood response across the region.
