The City of Grand Forks announces today that Roger Huston, Manager of Operations for the City, has left the organization.

“We are extremely sad to see Roger go, he was a great addition to the organization, and worked really well with Public Works team and the public. We wish him well in his new position” said Doug Allin, Chief Administrative Officer for the City.

Huston joined the City in the spring of 2014 and will be furthering his career in the South Okanagan. “I’ve really enjoyed my time here in Grand Forks and am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great group of people.  An excellent opportunity came along that I wasn’t expecting and I felt that I couldn’t turn down” says Huston, whose last day with the City will be at the end of March.

The City will be posting for the Manager of Operations position internally, first, which is in keeping with the succession plan the City has implemented.
