Salmo administrator takes job in Kimberley

Salmo is in the hunt for a new village administrator to replace Scott Sommerville, who is leaving to become city manager in Kimberley.

Salmo is in the hunt for a new village administrator to replace Scott Sommerville, who is leaving after five years to take the city manager’s job in Kimberley.

We are really going to miss Scott,” Salmo Mayor Ann Henderson said.

“He is just about as community minded as you can get. He thinks nothing of getting into the thick things with the works crew as well as chasing down a stray dog. We wish him all the best with his new position in Kimberley. They are very lucky to have him.”

Sommerville makes the move with wife Rachel and their two sons. His first day in Kimberley is June 17.

The deadline for applications to fill his job in Salmo is June 3.

Meanwhile, Kaslo has named Neil Smith as successor to longtime village administrator Rae Sawyer effective the end of August.

Smith, his wife Laura, and their three young children will come to Kaslo from Port McNeill, where he is currently manager of economic development and parks for the Regional District of Mount Waddington.

Smith, who was born and raised in Scotland, immigrated to Canada in 1999. He quipped that he is “neither a golfer nor a curler, but willing to learn!”
