Weeber has spent the last two years as CAO for the District of Mackenzie in northern B.C. and has previously held CAO roles with the Village of Queen Charlotte and the District of Stewart.
Prior to his CAO experience, Weeber spent 10 years as the fire chief and emergency program manager for the City of Terrace. Weeber brings with him a cross-section of experience in policy development, community consultation and strategic planning.
“Peter’s core values of building relationships and strong teams, communication, political astuteness, and decisive and innovative management are what attracted the eye of council. He has a proven record of success throughout his career,” said Mayor Andrew Jakubeit in a press release.
Weeber is expected to wrap things up with the District of Mackenzie and take over from City of Penticton acting CAO Mitch Moroziuk sometime in December.
