Slocan hires new administrator

The Village of Slocan has named Trish Dehnel as its new administrator.

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.

The village is in the midst of dealing with the loss of tax revenue from its sawmill, which is being demolished.
