Discussion on a replacement goes forward

The Municipality of Callander says they will either appoint a new mayor or hold a byelection. Former Mayor, Hec Lavigne passed away earlier this month and according to the Municipal Act, the council will be required to declare at either one of its next two meetings that the mayor’s seat is vacant. Once that is done, the council will have up to 60 days to either appoint someone to fill the vacancy or call a byelection.
