“Jeremy has excellent relationships with the local building and development industry,” said Todd Salter, general manager of planning and building services.

“With his strong focus on customer service and continuous improvement, Jeremy is well-positioned for his new role as Guelph’s chief building official.”

Laur has been with the city for 16 years and is the city’s third CBO since 2015 after longtime city employee Bruce Poole was fired in August of that year.
