Tallinn city government has passed the bill detailing the new structure of Tallinn's city apparatus and sent it to the city council. The bill prescribes the creation of a municipal strategy center and the position of city chancellor to run it.
Mayor of Tallinn Mihhail Kõlvart proposed the candidacy of recent City Enterprise Department head Kairi Vaher for city chancellor and that of recent legal service chief Priit Lello for city secretary.
Vaher will also run the new city strategy center that will be in charge of realizing the city's strategy. The center will govern six services: strategic planning, enterprise, communication, digital solutions, financial and HR.
Lello, who has worked for the city government for over 20 years, will take up the position of city secretary. Toomas Sepp left the post after 28 years in office on August 31.
Kõlvart told ERR in August that reorganization will see a part of the city chancellery's tasks moved to a new strategy center that will govern parts of the city apparatus that deal with development activities.
