District looks to fill staff vacancy

Just in time for the election and referendum, Coldstream will be dealing with a vacancy among staff.

Just in time for the election and referendum, Coldstream will be dealing with a vacancy among staff.

Alanna Dean, the director of engineering services, is resigning from her position, effective Nov. 5.

“Alanna’s been here for close to two years and has decided she wants to pursue other interests,” said Michael Stamhuis, chief administrative officer.

Dean has been with the district since February 2010, after Stamhuis left the engineering department to fill the vacant CAO position (formerly held by Wendy Kay).

With a number of bylaw changes, reviews and projects on the books, on top of the election and referendum process, Stamhuis anticipates a busy period ahead as staff work to fill the position.

“It will be sometime in the new year before we have that position filled.”

Dean could not be reached for comment.
