City hires new top boss

THE CITY of Terrace has hired its second chief administrator this year.

Heather Avison, a long time city official and its corporate administrator, was named chief administrator officer today.

She replaces Don Ramsay who resigned suddenly June 26 after barely three months on the job.

Ramsay was hired in the spring to replace Ron Poole who moved to be Kitimat's top administrator nearly a year ago.

Avison had been filling in as the chief administrative officer until Ramsay was hired and resumed the role when he left.

"Heather's dedication and commitment to the City of Terrace over the past 20 years combined with her local government management experience make her an excellent choice," said the city's mayor Dave Pernarowski in a press release today.

Avison has more than 20 years of experience working with the city, it said.
