Administrator hired for Lumby

The Village of Lumby has filled a senior vacancy.

Tom Kadla will take up the duties of chief administrative officer May 30.

“We are very excited,” said Mayor Kevin Acton.

“Mr. Kadla is very sharp. He started in garbage collection and has worked his way up in local government.”

Kadla is currently the chief administrator of Cache Creek and prior to that, he held several senior positions in Prince George.

He has a certificate with the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of B.C. and a diploma in local government administration.

“He has a reputation for being a doer,” said Acton.

There was a need for a new administrator after Frank Kosa resigned Feb. 11 after 10 years with the village.

Council interviewed five individuals for the position.

According to Acton, the administrator helps sets the tone for village operations.

“Politicians come and go but the administrator is the one who stays focused on vision,” he said,

“It’s great to get someone in there with real drive.”
