New-elected Area F Director Conrad Turcotte did not take his oath of office Thursday along with the rest of the Cariboo Regional District directors.
According to the local government act, directors have 45 days to take the oath.
In the meantime, current Area F director Joan Sorley will hold the position until it is practical to hold a by-election, the CRD’s manager of communications Emily Epp noted Friday in the CRD Board Highlights Friday.
With a prayer and traditional song from Williams Lake Band elder Virginia Gilbert and officiating by Williams Lake Provincial Court Judge Peter Whyte, the new Cariboo Regional District board members took the oath of office Thursday at the CRD board room.
There are seven new directors on the board, said Area H director Margo Wagner, who was acclaimed as board chair.
“It’s a big change,” Wagner said. “I’m really looking forward to forming a cohesive group that will work together for the benefit of the Cariboo Regional District as whole.”
