Big Valley is heading for an election and there are five running for two vacant seats.
The Mail reported in its October 9 edition that nominations had opened for the two seats. One was vacated by former Mayor Sandra Schell who tendered her resignation. She had applied and was successful in becoming the CAO for the Village of Big Valley.
The other seat was vacated by Councillor Dwayne Grover who also resigned. Harry Nibourg is currently mayor.
In the interim the village, without the ability to form quorum, Municipal Affairs assigned an official administrator.
Running for the seats are Larry Annable, Clark German, Asaph Ken Johnson, Ron Olive-Kilpatrick and Arthur Tizzard.
The election is to be held on Thursday, November 28.
- This story has been updated from a previous edition that ran in The Drumheller Mail which incorrectly stated that Mr. Nibourg had vacated his seat. The Mail apologizes for the error.
