The District of Fort St. James is making preparations for a local government by-election.

Election officers have been put in place after the written resignation of Councillor Brad Miller on Sept. 25.

Both Chief Election Officer (CEO) and Deputy Election Officer (DCEO) positions have been appointed by District Council.

These two officials will be responsible for carrying out all statutory and administrative duties of running the election.

Due to Miller’s resignation, a by-election is necessary if there is a vacancy on Council prior to January, 2018.

The election must take place on a Saturday no later than 80 days after the appointment of the CEO and DCEO according to Council.
