No By-election to be Held for Division 4

On Thursday, October 27th, 2016, Lac Ste. Anne County Council resolved to forego a by-election for Division 4 as a result of the vacancy left by Councillor Dwight Davidson's passing. As such, there will be five Councillors in total for the remainder of term. On October 16, 2017, a general municipal election will be held.

Per the Municipal Government Act, if there is a vacancy with less than 12 months remaining in a term, the decision to hold a by-election shall be made by Council. As less than 12 months remain before a general election, Council has determined that a by-election would be an unnecessary expense and disruption to County business. With its remaining five members, Council will still maintain quorum – or the minimum number of Councillors required. Council remains confident that it can continue to adequately represent all County taxpayers until the next election.

Please note that taxpayers have access to each and every Councillor, regardless of the division in which they reside. Councillors represent the entire County; not merely their home division. As such, representation of Division 4 remains unabated by Councillor Davidson’s passing.

Any Lac Ste. Anne County resident with questions, comments or concerns is free to contact Mayor Bill Hegy as well as any sitting Council Member. Additionally, residents are encouraged to contact the County Manager and Assistant County Manager as needed.
