Locals win government achievement awards

Eleven local government employees from communities across British Columbia, recognized for their education and work experience in the local government field, are being awarded the following certificates by the provincial Board of Examiners.

Among the recipients are two municipal employees from the East Kootenay: Karen Cote, director of finance with the District of Invermere and Marnie Dueck, municipal clerk at the City of Cranbrook.

“B.C. communities are supported by the commitment of dedicated public servants every day. The individuals recognized by the Board of Examiners demonstrate a commitment to excellence that can make all British Columbians proud,” said Ida Chong, minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

On average, only 25 local government certificates are awarded annually.
