PENTICTON - The South Okanagan-Similkameen Regional District is looking for a new finance manager for the second time in a year.

Finance manager Maureen Hayter has submitted her resignation, effective April 6, and the regional district has begun the process to replace her, according to chief administrative officer Bill Newell.

Hayter has been employed by the regional district for less than a year, having been appointed on March 8, 2017. Prior to that, she was director of finance for Okanagan-Skaha School District.

Hayter replaced Sandy Croteau, who resigned from the regional district in late 2016. The position went vacant for several months before Hayter was hired.

Hayter joins a lengthening list of regional district managers who have left the district recently, in spite of a boost in salaries.

Public Works manager Roger Huston resigned in January 2017; Development Services manager Donna Butler left the regional district’s employment in June 2017 and Emergency Services supervisor Dale Kronebusch resigned in June 2017.

Last February, the regional board heard the regional district wasn’t competitive when it comes to paying managerial salaries.

The board agreed at the time to boost salaries into more competitive pay categories in compliance with the board’s compensation policy and procedure.
