There may not be anyone who calls Jumbo Glacier Resort Municipality home just yet, but the community now has four government officials.

A mayor, two councillors and an interim corporate officer were all appointed Tuesday when the B.C. government officially named the planned project a resort municipality.

The council and staff will be paid for by B.C. taxpayers, as the community has no taxable population base.

Phil Taylor is a retired chief administrative officer from the Town of Golden and has been hired as the budding town's corporate officer. He explains to host Chris Walker what work lies ahead.
