After 10 years with the Town of Oliver, Cathy Cowan will be retiring as the chief administrative officer.
Cowan worked for the town as the corporate officer before becoming the CAO. She will be officially retiring in June, 2021.
“After 30 years working in local government, including nearly 10 years with the Town of Oliver as the Corporate Officer and CAO, I have decided that it is time for me to retire from public service and spend more time with my family, volunteering and travelling (once we get the OK),” Cowan said in a press release.
Mayor Martin Johansen offered his thanks to Cowan on behalf of the town council and community.
“Through the benefit of Cathy’s strong leadership, council has been fortunate to make significant progress on its many priorities,” said Johansen. “Her efforts have also ensured Oliver is well-positioned financially to manage the immediate challenges of COVID-19 and plan for economic recovery in the future.
“Cathy’s legacy includes excellent working relationships with all levels of government, including the Osoyoos Indian Band, along with plans and documents to guide the community in the development of the downtown and Station Street.”
No replacement for Cowan’s position has been named.
