Council Considers Options On Filling Mayor's Chair Tonight
Councillors could be deciding how they will be filling the vacant seat of the Mayor of Huntsville tonight at their regularly scheduled meeting.
Councilors will hear a report on the options to fill the seat left vacant when Scott Aitchison resigned to take up the position of MP for Parry Sound Muskoka.
The report offers 4 options:
- appointing a current member of council
- appointing the other candidate who ran for the position in the last election
- soliciting applications from qualified individuals
- running a by-election
As of press time, Peggy Peterson, who ran for the mayor's position in the last election, has withdrawn her name from consideration.
