Taylor’s Chief Administrative Officer Andrew Young is moving on to Invermere this fall. 

Young joined the district in October 2018 after moving from Wells, and his last official day will be Oct. 12.

“My time with the District of Taylor has been fabulous. Taylor has really benefited from having strong leadership, in Mayor Fraser and its council,” said Young. “The work experience has been tremendous, I’m going to miss them.”

Young will start a new role in November as the CAO for Invermere. He called the move an exciting opportunity, and looks forward to the recreation development opportunities it will bring.

"Being a CAO helps you advance the development of various things," said Young. "Invermere is one of B.C.'s most attractive communities for recreation. There's a lot going on."  

Young will be assisting council until his departure, and stressed the importance of teamwork.  

“The good ship of Taylor is in good hands with the management team,” said Young. 

Said Mayor Rob Fraser, "It's been great to have him. He's added a lot in the last couple years. We wish him well, he's moving to a great community, and it's a great position for him there."

Taylor is the latest Peace region municipality to see its top civil servant move on their post this year.

Fort St. John CAO Dianne Hunter is retiring this month, and has been replaced. Hudson's Hope CAO Chris Cvik is retiring at the end of this year.

Dawson Creek CAO Duncan Redfearn left for Grand Forks in March, while Tumbler Ridge CAO Jordan Wall left for Comox in April.
