Marvin Kwiatkowski is to start new position in that city next month

THE CITY of Terrace is losing one of its top officials to the City of Kamloops.

Marvin Kwiatkowski, who is the city’s director of development services, starts next month as the director of development and engineering services in the southern BC city.

His responsibilities with the city here include engineering, planning, building inspection, business licensing, mapping, bylaw enforcement and environmental issues.

The announcement was made just this morning by the City of Kamloops.

Kwiatkowski has been the director of development services here since 2003.

The Kamloops announcement was made by David Trawin, that city’s chief administrative officer.

Trawin is no stranger to Terrace. He was a top official with the city here until moving to take a job with the City of Kamloops.

He had been that city’s director of development and engineering services until being named as its chief administrative officer earlier this year.

That director’s position had remained vacant until this morning’s announcement.

“This was a tough competition,” states David Trawin, City of Kamloops Chief Administration Officer. “We undertook a rigorous process to ensure we had the best fit for the job. These are not decisions to be made lightly.  Our first priority is to recruit and retain employees who are customer service oriented, innovative and future focused. Mr. Kwiatkowski demonstrated these qualities throughout the process.”

Kwiatkowski is to start his new job July 16.
