New Board Chair for the Thompson-Nicola Regional District elected.
Ken Gillis was the only director nominated and was named board chair at yesterday's inaugural meeting.
He has been the Area L director since 2011.
Gillis says "the never-ending threat of bio-solids" will be the first big issue the board has to tackle.
"It may be inevitable that land-application goes ahead. In that case, I would be hoping to see is very, very strict regulation on how, and where it is supplied."
Area O director Bill Kershaw was named the board's vice-chair, and like Gillis he was the only person nominated for that role.
