PENTICTON - The City of Penticton is looking for a new director of development services.

Penticton Mayor Andrew Jakubeit said in an email today, July 29, development services director Jules Hall is no longer employed by the City of Penticton.

The mayor did not provide a reason for Hall’s departure, stating it was typically not the city’s practice to disclose circumstances around the departure of staff.

Hall replaced former development services director Anthony Haddad in May of 2015, after relocating to Penticton from from Calgary, where he worked for that city for six years.
