The city has filled a new management position, hiring Gaylene Thorogood to the new post of Police Support Services Manager.
She filled a similar role on the west coast for the past 5 years, managing the Ucluelet, Tofino and Ahousat detachments.
City CAO Tim Pley said it’s a position that needed to be created to assist the 15 city support staff at the police station.
Meanwhile, dozens of people showed up at Echo Center yesterday afternoon to salute retiring Community Services Manager Theresa Kingston, who recently announced her retirement after 40 years with the city.
Pley said they are currently interviewing candidates for the replacement position of Director of Parks, Recreation and Heritage.
