As the municipality looks to replace its treasurer, a temporary replacement has been selected.

On April 8, Ed Sykora will begin a three-month contract with the municipality.

Municipal administrator Tom Day said Sykora has a lengthy background in local government financial work. He served as the chief financial officer for Central Saanich on Vancouver Island for many years.

Day said Sykora also has expertise in the municipality’s financial software.

The municipality is also advertising for a permanent treasurer.

Day said applications will be accepted until April 8. After that time, the municipality will review the applications and conduct reference checks before hiring a financial officer.

Ken Ostraat, the former treasurer for the municipality, resigned from the position last month. He had served with the municipality around 21 years.

At the last municipal council meeting on March 25, Day was named interim chief financial officer and municipal planner Ian McIntosh was appointed acting chief administrative officer in the absence of the administrator.
