Village of Sedley News Winter 2023
My name is Melody Dixon-Lye. I am the new Village of Sedley Administrator. I have lived in Francis for most of my adult life. I worked in Regina at Saskatchewan Municipal Hail Insurance for 32 years where I was the Assistant Office Manager. I retired from Hail Insurance in 2016 and started as Town of Francis Administrator in August 2016 working one and a half days a week. I am still the administrator in Francis working on Wednesdays there. In 2017 I took on the Administrator job in Village of McLean working 2 ½ days a week there. In 2020 after taking the University Classes and passing an office inspection I received my Standard Certificate in Local Government Administration. In December 2022 I left McLean and joined the Village of Sedley. I am enjoying my new commute and learning all about the Village of Sedley.
The Office will be open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays from 9 am to 4 pm.
