Regional district administrator suspended

  • Feb. 2, 2007 7:00 a.m.

Rumours have been circulating about the why’s and wherefores of the Regional Districts long-serving administrator Janet Beil’s suspension. On the advice of her lawyer, Ms Beil couldn’t offer any more details, but she did confirm she has been suspended without pay. Ms Beil has worked for the Regional District for 19 years. Her suspension leaves the district even more short-staffed than usual. Masset Mayor Barry Pages, who is also the chair of the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District, said he would not speak to the topic as it was a personnel issue. The status of Ms Beil’s employment may have been discussed at what is being alleged as “an illegal in-camera meeting” after the Jan. 19 SQRD meeting in Prince Rupert. Regional District director Ian Hetman told The Observer to talk to Mr. Pages about the meeting. When asked whether the Community Charter had been followed with a motion made to hold an in-camera meeting at the end of the Jan. 19 public meeting, he said that issue hasn’t been dealt with and he can’t discuss it until it has been decided. “I’d like to, but I can’t,” he said.
