Ashley Stradeski, Director of Finance with the City of Yorkton, is being appointed to the Municipal Employees’ Pension Plan Commission as a Joint Representative of Employers of Police Officers and Firefighters.
Yorkton Council approved the appointment unanimously at its regular meeting held Tuesday.
The position became open when the Municipal Employees Pension Act experienced recent amendments which saw the membership on the Municipal Employees’ Pension Plan (MEPP) Commission increase by two members, explained a report circulated at council.
One of these members is to be appointed jointly by the employers of police officers and firefighters who participate in the plan, namely the cities of Estevan, North Battleford, Swift Current, Prince Albert, and Yorkton.
“The commitment required to sit on the Commission in this capacity requires a balanced and extensive skill set in order to fulfill the fiduciary duty of a trustee, such as institutional level investments, finance and audit, budget and administration, risk management, and strategic planning,” detailed the report.
The report noted Stradeski holds the skills and ability to commit to this position representing employers of police and firefighters, and therefore is being recommended for appointment by the City of Yorkton.
