The news is out.
I am pleased to advise that the City of Revelstoke has hired Mike Thomas to take charge of the Engineering Department effective November 29th, 2012
Mr. Thomas comes to us from Langley, BC where he was the Manager of Engineering Services and prior to that as the City Engineer for Rossland, BC. In these positions he was responsible for a wide range of technical engineering design and management of construction contracts for two rapidly developing communities. Mr. Thomas’s earlier career included a wide range of experience in both the private and public sectors.
We're looking forward to this move, from a work perspective, the engineering issues that all of the communities of BC are facing are equally tangible in smaller cities like Revelstoke, but changes such as infrastructure upgrades or development are more noticeable to the whole community – improvements are much more noticable. The opportunity to guide the infrastructure and engineering operations for this resort municipality is a real privilege, and as a family we are excited to build new relationships and explore the region and it's many outdoor pursuits. Revelstoke is a community that we've been to and been through several times over the years and it will be great to call it home.
