Central Saanich planning director to change

Hope Burns, director of planning and building services, no longer employed by district

There have been some recent changes in staff at the municipality of Central Saanich. The Peninsula News Review received notice that effective Oct. 15, Hope Burns, director of planning and building services, was no longer employed by the district.

“Unfortunately it’s a personnel issue and we can’t elaborate on it,” said the municipality’s Chief Administrative Officer, Patrick Robins.

When asked if the municipality was looking to fill the position, Robins said they hadn’t begun any processes yet.

“Ms. Burns’ employment ending is so recent that we haven’t had time to consider our next step. As soon as we do we’ll certainly share it with the public as I’m sure it’s a matter (people) will be interested in.”

Burns, who did not return calls from the News Review, had been an employee of the municipality for 12 years.
