Interim administrator to assist in hiring full-time CAO

Sicamous council has hired an interim administrator, with sights set on hiring someone full time for the position later this year.

Sicamous council has hired an interim administrator, with sights set on hiring someone full time for the position later this year.

Tim Palmer was hired as the district’s interim chief administrative officer on July 9. Palmer previously served as CAO for the City of Revelstoke, retiring in February.

Sicamous Mayor Terry Rysz said council was fortunate to have quite a few options for the replacement of former CAO Fred Banham, who resigned earlier this month.

Rysz said the plan is to welcome Palmer, and give him time to get comfortable with the job before the search begins for a full-time CAO.

“We’ll have him start to look for another CAO for us somewhere in maybe late summer, fall,” said Rysz. “And then, I want to have a transition period so he knows what’s going on and then when we have a new CAO onboard, he can work with our interim for a while to get comfortable.”

Rysz is hopeful some overlap will provide a smoother transition period between Palmer and his replacement.
