New top bureaucrat in town

You'll be seeing a lot more of this guy in months and, ideally, years to come. He's Tim Palmer and he'll be the City's new Chief Administrative Officer. He may be the top civil servant who, in effect, runs the municipal government but he hasn't taken office yet (he starts next Monday). Freshly arrived in Revelstoke, he dropped by City Council on Tuesday to watch its budget deliberations. Do you think they un-nerved him? Well, he didn't run screaming from the room so we'll see.
