May 24, 2019: The outcome of the By-Election call for the Rural Municipality of Belfast resulted in two Acclamations! We received exactly the required number of candidates (one for Mayor and one for Councillor), so consequently, the scheduled By‑Election vote for Monday, June 10, 2019 has been CANCELLED!!
Both candidates submitted their nomination papers prior to the Friday, May 24, 2019 – 2:00 PM deadline; accordingly, both positions were Acclaimed.
Congratulations go out to:
Mayor Elect – Garth Gillis, and
Councillor Elect – Lynn Docherty
Thanks to everyone for their interest and participation, and a special thanks to Sarah Jane Bell for her help as Returning Officer for this By-Election call.
Both individuals will be sworn in on Wednesday June 19, 2019 @ 7:00 PM at a Special Meeting of Council at the Belfast Firehall.
Agenda to be posted on the Municipality Website.
