CAO Teresa Sullivan billed the district $22,314.37 in 2016, according to financial documents. Gabryel Joseph , who left the district in March, , claimed $16,413.59 in expenses.

Top expenses filed by the district employees over the last three years averaged about $10,000.

Also in June:

• Sooke and the West Shore expect a boost in transit bus service this fall, with 20,000 additional service hours earmarked for the region in December.

• Sooke Board of Education chair Bob Phillips resigned after 18 months in the position. He was replaced by rookie trustee Ravi Parmar.

• Three men were rescued from the Sooke Basin after boat capsized. The 12-foot vessel overturned between Billings Spit and Goodridge Island.
