The District of Squamish has confirmed that a top official is no longer working with the District.
Gary Buxton, the General Manager of Community Planning and Infrastructure, is no longer employed by the District. Sources have told the Squamish Reporter Buxton was terminated from his job along with Chris Wickham, the director of engineering.
