A Central Saanich councillor who has apparently been working in the Cayman Islands while on a six-month paid leave from his council duties has stepped down.
Terry Siklenka has resigned his council seat effective immediately, Mayor Alastair Bryson said Monday evening.
Siklenka was granted the leave, worth almost $6,000, on Nov. 5.
His name appears as a staff member on the website of a company servicing air conditioners in the Cayman Islands.
A Central Saanich resident and blogger stumbled across the reference.
The Saanich house Siklenka owns with his wife is listed for sale.
Siklenka, who was first elected in 2008 and re-elected last year, last attended a council meeting Sept. 4.
Bryson said his council seat will be filled.
