Trafford Hall is no longer employed as chief administrative officer at the Regional District of North Okanagan.

There’s been a major shake-up in leadership at the Regional District of North Okanagan.

The RDNO board issued a release late Thursday stating that Trafford Hall is no longer employed as chief administrative officer.

“We have a statement the board released and it’s straight forward,” said Rick Fairbairn, vice-chairperson, when asked for further details.

“Personnel matters are private and confidential.”

A similar response was provided by other board members when contacted.”We really can’t discuss that one,” said director Mike Macnabb.

“We don’t discuss personnel issues,” added director Rob Sawatzky.

Hall was hired as administrator in May 2011 and previously he had been with the District of Kitimat for 17 years.

RDNO says it will initiate a search for a new administrator and Rob Smailes, general manager of planning and building, will serve as acting administrator.

Hall could not be reached for comment.
