MARMORA AND LAKE TO APPOINT NEW COUNCILLOR 

MARMORA – The municipality is looking to fill a council vacancy after one of its elected members resigned last month.

Council accepted the resignation of long-time resident and councillor Elaine Jones as of July 31. Jones is moving out of the area and as a result was unable to finish the last year of her term.

The process to replace Jones will come in the form of an application package and interview process, explained Clerk Tonia Bennett at a council meeting held August 1.

Residents interested in the position can access an application package via the website (www.marmoraandlake.ca) or pick up one at the municipal office as of August 10. Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on September 6, 2017.

As part of the process, candidates will be interviewed by council in an open forum at a meeting scheduled for September 12, Bennett said. Council will then deliberate and make a decision by September 19 with intentions of having the new councillor in place by the October 3 meeting.

Application packages can be submitted in person to the municipal office Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Anyone meeting qualifications outlined in the application package are eligible to apply.
