Gold River hires a new Chief Administrative Officer!
Mayor Brad Unger and Council welcome W Michael Bolch as the new CAO of the Village of Gold River.
Council reviewed many applicants and finally shortlisted and interviewed them in Gold River last weekend.
Michael has extensive and deep experience from Western Canada, including The City of Victoria, the Powell River Regional District and most recently as CAO of a Vancouver Island Water Improvement District. He is also currently a Director of the Coastal Water Suppliers Association. He takes over control mid-March from retiring Village CAO Larry Plourde, former top executive of Gold River Municipality and trusted employee for many years.
‘For decades Larry led a small dedicated staff and advised Mayors and Councils equally and well. Larry leaves our Village in great shape. He will spend a few more months on special project files and helping Michael into a smooth transition to the new CAO position.
We appreciate Larry’s dedicated service to the Village over the years.’
We also look forward to Michael’s many talents and welcome him and his family to our municipality. ‘
