Kevin Huey is the new town Public Works Manager. Residents that have lived in Princeton for quite some time will recognize Huey as he is actually a former Princeton resident who decided to “come home.”
He is in fact a ‘Princetonite,’ born and raised here. From 1978 to 1990 Huey was employed by the Town of Princeton as a labourer, moving up in ranks to the foreman position before moving on.
Huey took over the Superintendent position of the Kaleden and Keremeos Irrigation Districts.
Coming home after 23 years is just that— ‘coming home.’ “Things have changed, but much feels the same,” said Huey, “I am happy to be back,” he adds.
Bruce Hamilton, Interim Manager of Public Works in Princeton, sent out the announcement introducing Huey as the new manager on Thursday, May 16.
Hamilton also extended his thanks for all the assistance he was provided during the time he was in Princeton.
Huey began fulfilling his duties as Public Works Manager immediately.
When he is on his own time, Huey will enjoy as he says, “the perfect country.” As one who grew up in Princeton loving the beautiful outdoors, he will continue to enjoy activities like ‘biking and hiking along with a little bit of fishing.’
Whether its at work or play, Huey said, “there’s plenty here to keep me busy.”
Kevin Huey, manager of Public Works can be reached at the Town of Princeton by calling 250-295-3135.
