District hires Utility Operator 2

2022-07-20 – Staff Announcement: Utility Operator 2

After an exhaustive search that lasted the better part of 10 months and after multiple recruitment cycles, the District of Clearwater is very pleased to announce the appointment of Britton (Britt) Fraser as our new Utility Operator 2. Britt’s appointment will be effective Monday July 25, 2022.

Britt joins the District team with over 16 years of training and experience as a Utility Operator within local government including at a senior level as Chief Operator/Foreman. Most recently, Britt was employed as a Forman/Chief Operator with the City of West Kelowna Utilities Department. He holds several credentials in water and sewer operations including being certified as a Level 3 operator for Water Distribution, Level 1 for Water Treatment, and Level 1 for Wastewater Treatment.

With this appointment, the District will be adding crucial capacity to our team which will help us maintain our service quality to the residents and community. It also means that our ongoing staffing pressures will be alleviated thereby allowing the Operations Team to function better. I would like to acknowledge and thank Linda Klassen, Director of Finance, Shane Woolliscroft, Supervisor of Public Works, and Josh Visscher, Utility Operator 2 for their work/role in helping the District fill this important position.

Please join me in welcoming Britton to the District and wishing him every success in his new role and community.

John Thomas

Chief Administrative Officer
