Cole is the Agricultural and Environmental Services Manager for Rocky View County. Rocky View County comprises a largely rural and agricultural land base that surrounds the City of Calgary, north of the Bow River; it includes several large urban communities, serving a population of nearly 40,000 residents. The County is home to many types of agricultural production and a vast array of commercial businesses.
Cole has provided nearly 25 years of private sector and government service related to Environmental operations; most relevant for the RCA would be his duties providing direction to the Solid Waste and Recycling Services section at Rocky View County. He was directly involved with the waste management needs arising from the flood of 2013, this recent disaster directly impacted the County and specifically the community of Bragg Creek.
Given the urgency and the numerous limitations encountered, Cole and his team are very proud of the waste diversion that was achieved during those days and weeks that followed the flood.
