“The Director of Engineering is a key member of the municipality’s senior management team who will oversee planning and maintenance of existing and new municipal infrastructure, including seven water supply systems, the water treatment plant, sewer treatment plant, roads, municipal parks and trail systems, beaches, docks, culverts, structures and solid waste disposal,” read the press release. 

Graham will take over the position from the interim director contracted from Urban Systems, Glen Skurhan. Skurhan came to the position after longtime superintendent of public works Bob Robinson resigned late last spring. 

“We are very pleased to welcome Patrick to the team at Bowen Island Municipality,” said Mayor Gary Ander in the press release. “His array of experience will serve us well with the projects and challenges that lie ahead of us.”
