Finance director leaving to join View Royal

Michael Dillabaugh leaves District of Sooke after five years

  • Jan. 7, 2016 10:00 a.m.

The District of Sooke has lost a high-ranking official to View Royal.

Finance director Michael Dillabaugh announced his resignation to municipal staff just before Christmas. His last day is today.

He will take on a similar role in View Royal.

“It’s a new opportunity and a chance to learn and have a different experience with a different municipality,” Dillabaugh said.

Dillabaugh served as finance director for five years. He was named interim chief administrative officer late last year after the resignation of CAO Gord Howie. The municipality then named Teresa Sullivan the new CAO in December.

Acting mayor Kerrie Reay said Dillabaugh was a hugh asset to the municipality, helping council to develop “good budgets” and achieve low tax rates.

“I’ve always found Michael great to work with and he’s very knowledgeable,” said Reay, who has been on district council since 2011.

 

The district is beginning a search for a new finance director, and named Brent Blackhall, acting finance director.
