Administrative history

Red Deer became an unincorporated town in 1894, and a village in 1898, under the ordinances of the then Northwest Territories. It was incorporated as a town in 1901; and incorporated as a city in 1913. In 1907, the town adopted the commission form of municipal government. Council was advised by a Commission, which consisted of the current Mayor and the Secretary-Treasurer (appointed by by-law.) The Commissioners were responsible for the day-to-day administration of all aspects of the town's operations. The Commission system remained in place even after the town became a city. In 1995, influenced by the Carver policy model of governance, Commissioner system was replaced by the Office of City Manager. The following persons have served as the City Commissioners: L.C. Fulmer (1907-1908), A.T. Stephenson (1908-1935), R.S. Gillespie (1935-1953), J.A. Beveridge (1953-1956), E. Newman (1957-1960), J.G. Gamble (1960-1962), F.A. Amy (1963, acting), Denis Cole (1963-1971), M.H. Rogers (1971-1974), Thomas Suchy (1974-1975), and Michael Day (1976-1995).
