There’s a new face at the helm of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, filling a position previously held by lawyer Lyle MacMillan, who has stepped down, preferring to take an advisory role.
In his place is Rob Paterson of Newmac Animal Feeds, who has been elected president of the Cloverdale BIA.
Paterson was named board president at a meeting July 15.
Norma Brown and Aaron Hotell will serve as first and second vice presidents of the BIA board, and Dean Moore of Michaud’s Hair Salon and Spa, has been re-elected treasurer.
A week earlier, at the association’s annual general meeting, members agreed to adopt a motion to renew the Cloverdale BIA agreement for another five-year-period beginning in March 2015 – a recommendation that will be forwarded to Surrey city council for approval.
The Cloverdale BIA is funded by the City of Surrey through a levy on businesses in the membership area, which includes about 280 businesses in the historic town centre.
