No byelection needed in Salmo

Salmo won’t need a byelection to fill vacancies on village council after only two candidates put their names forward.

Salmo won’t need a byelection to fill vacancies on village council after only two candidates put their names forward.

Diana Lockwood (pictured) and Jonathon Heatlie, who both ran unsuccessfully in last November’s general election, were the only ones to let their names stand by Friday’s deadline. Former councillor Bob Vliet also filed nomination papers but withdrew.

Barring any complications, they are expected to be declared elected by acclamation on Aug. 17 and be sworn in soon after for a term of slightly more than three years.

They will replace Cathy Paton and Ken Anderson, who both resigned recently with little explanation. Council has continued to function with a bare quorum of three.
