Important News Release from the BC Wildfire Service


The one thing in life that is for sure is that things are always changing.

It is with mixed feelings the Village of Fruitvale announces the retirement of Glen Grieve.

Glen has been an integral part of the Village of Fruitvale team for thirty-four years most notably in his position as Water Foreman operating the Beaver Valley Water System. Glen holds a Level III Water Treatment Operator and Level II Water Distribution Operator Certificate with the Environmental Operators Certification Program and has ensured users of the Beaver Valley Water System have enjoyed worry free and safe water treatment and distribution to their homes.

While Glen will be staying close to the Village of Fruitvale imparting his knowledge and experience as we move into a new chapter operating the Beaver Valley Water System, we will miss seeing him daily through our operations.

Congratulations Glen and we will miss you. Enjoy the next chapter!
