Bowen Island Municipality Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Kathy Lalonde has decided to take personal leave effective October 22, 2019. She intends to return to work on January 6, 2020. We wish Kathy the best during this period.
During Kathy’s leave, Council agreed that the Municipality would be best served if an Interim CAO could be in place during her absence. We are fortunate to be able to appoint Dennis Back as Interim CAO. Dennis has worked in local government for many years and has held a variety of administrative and management positions during this time. Dennis previously worked with the District of North Vancouver for 12 years, including a period as the Chief Administrative Officer. He has also worked with a number of other local governments including on a contract basis in order to provide interim leadership and support.
We are very pleased to welcome Dennis to Bowen Island Municipality.
