The City of Terrace has filled both the vacant Director of Engineering and Public Works position and the new Public Works Manager position.
Jonathan Lambert has accepted the position of Director of Engineering and Public Works and will start on April 19, 2021. Lambert has been with McElhanney Ltd. for the past 12 years, where he has led the Structural Engineering Division at their Terrace office. Lambert takes over the role from Rob Schibli, who vacated the position in September 2020.
Ben Reinbolt has accepted the position of Public Works Manager, starting on April 6, 2021. Reinbolt has previous experience with the City of Terrace: he worked as a summer student in 2014, then rejoined the team in 2017 as a Labourer and then Utility Person in 2018. He comes to the City from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, where he has since been serving as the Area Manager (Roads). The Public Works Manager is a new position that was added to the department this year. This role will provide oversight to the various Public Works Foremen and reports directly to the Director of Engineering and Public Works.
“I am excited to have the local knowledge and expertise of both Jonathan and Ben on our team. They are both long-time residents of Terrace who care about our community and will be valuable leaders to our Public Works department,” said Kris Boland, Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Terrace.
Staff are still in the process of filling the vacant Leisure Services Director position and an announcement will be made when this position is filled.
