Residents of Nakusp will go to the polls in mid-July for a civic by-election.
They’ll be voting on Saturday, July 13 to choose a new village councillor to replace Janis Neufeld.
Neufeld quit council last month, six months after coming in second in the municipal election that put her into office.
She cited health reasons as behind her decision to quit.
“It’s been interesting learning about the process, and how the organization runs, and having the opportunity to work with the mayor and other councillors,” she said. “But it was also quite stressful, and just not the right timing for me.”
Would-be candidates can pick up their nomination forms at the village office. They can submit their candidate’s papers from May 28 to June 7.
The campaign period lasts from June 15 to July 13.
Candidates can spend up to $5,000 in seeking a seat on village council.
But that’s assuming an election is needed at all: officials at the village office said that by press time, just one potential candidate had picked up the forms needed to run for office.
