There are some changes in the Village of Big Valley following the organizational meeting on Thursday, October 12, as council elected Councillor Clark German as the village’s new Mayor and approved changes to its regular meeting schedule.
Mr. German was acclaimed to council in September 2022 after former Councillor Gail Knudsen tendered her resignation earlier the same month, and had previously served in the capacity of Mayor prior to the 2021 municipal election.
Big Valley Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Colleen Mayne shares that Amber Hoogenberg retained her role as Deputy Mayor at the organizational meeting.
Along with the change in leadership, council also changed when the village’s regular council meetings are held.
Meetings will be moved from the second Thursday of the month to the third Monday of the month. If a statutory holiday falls on the third Monday, such as Family Day or Victoria Day in February and May respectively, the meeting will instead be held on the second Monday of the month.
