The Village of Slocan has named Trish Dehnel as its new administrator.
Dehnel, the City of Nelson’s former head planner, has been hired for a one-year term.
She has worked in Slocan on three recent planning projects — an official community plan, a village zoning bylaw, and an age friendly vision.
Last year she managed the Kootenay Energy Diet for FortisBC, encouraging homeowners in the West Kootenay/Boundary to do energy retrofits on their homes.
Dehenel will work two days per week for Slocan and will continue her part-time position as energy planner with the Community Energy Association in Nelson.
She replaces Jack Richardson, who resigned in late February.
