LUNENBURG COUNTY, NS – An experienced municipal civil servant has been hired to head up the Lunenburg County Municipal Joint Services Board (MJSB).

The MJSB’s Board of Directors announced today that Jennifer Keating-Hubley will be taking over as Chief Operating Officer (COO) from retiring outgoing COO Siew Secord effective November 16, 2020.

Keating-Hubley has served as the Director of Finance for the Region of Queens since 2011, which included a period of approximately six months when she held the role of acting Chief Administrative Officer. Her career in municipal finance has spanned more than 15 years.

“I’m looking forward to bringing with me the many years of experience and knowledge I have in municipal Government to an organization in the community where I have resided all of my life,” said Keating-Hubley.

Prior to her time in the public sector, Keating-Hubley spent more than a decade in the private sector where she was the finance manager for McDonald’s restaurants in the Bridgewater and Liverpool areas.

The Municipal Joint Services Board was established in 2013 through a Memorandum of Understanding to better-serve residents of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg, the Town of Mahone Bay, and the Town of Bridgewater.

Each partnering municipality has assigned members to sit on the board, who in turn report to their respective municipal councils regularly to provide updates and to identify future shared services opportunities.

The Lunenburg Regional Community Recycling Centre was the first shared service to be administered by the MJSB Since then, the MJSB has provided additional shared services for the partner municipalities, including Information Technology (IT) and Human Resources.
