Council

Elected in October 2020, your Municipal Council consists of a Warden, Deputy Warden, and five district Councillors, each elected for a four-year term. Municipal voters will elect one Councillor from each of seven (7) districts, while the Warden and Deputy Warden are nominated and appointed by Council and appointed through a Council motion.
