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.

Despite the excitement, we are sad to leave many great friends and attractions that the Lower Mainland of BC has to offer, but really excited to get back into the interior of BC. If you're on your way through, drop me a line.

  1. Hello – I recently came across a photo on your flickr account of the Osprey Ferry on Kootenay Lake. I work for a non profit, International Selkirk Loop ( which was created to enhance the local economy through the promotion of tourism along its route in Northern Idaho, Northeastern Washington and the East and West Kootenay region of British Columbia. I would like to use the photo for the cover of our 2013 travel guide. This guide is free to travelers and helps them find things to see and do along the way. I would of course give you photo credit listing your name or website, whichever you prefer. May I have permission to use it? Thank you for your consideration.
