Port nominations open July 25

  • Jul. 7, 2006 6:00 p.m.

Nomination forms are now available at the Port Clements village office for anyone who wants to run for the council position left open after councillor Derek Hoenen resigned last month.
The office will accept nominations between July 25 and Aug. 4. If more than one candidate comes forward, the by-election will be held on Sept. 9.
Candidates do not have to live in Port Clements, but they do have to be Canadian citizens, at least 18 years old, residents of BC for at least the past six months, and not disqualified under the Local Government Act.
Council members voted to appoint administrator Terry McMullon as chief election officer at their meeting July 4.
Councillor Wally Cheer asked about how much the by-election will cost the village, and Mr. McMullon said the costs should be minimal. The biggest expense will probably be staff time, he said.
