Applications to Fill Vacant Councillor Position

February 1, 2022

Following the decision of Council, the Town of The Blue Mountains is now accepting applications to fill one (1) vacant Councillor position for the remainder of the 2018 – 2022 term of Council.

If you are interested in applying, information packages are available on the elections page on the Town website or by contacting the Town Clerk. The vacant Councillor position will be filled by appointment and as a result, no formal election or public vote will be conducted.

All applicants must be a qualified elector as defined in the Municipal Elections Act. Applicants must be:

  • A Canadian citizen;
  • At least 18 years old, and;
  • Resident of the Town of The Blue Mountains, or the owner or tenant of land in the Town of The Blue Mountains, or the spouse of such a person; and
  • Not prohibited from voting (as per the Municipal Elections Act) or otherwise by law.

Background Information
The vacancy was created due to the appointment of Peter Bordignon to the position of Deputy Mayor, from his previous role as Councillor. The Deputy Mayor position was declared vacant due to the passing of Deputy Mayor Rob Potter.

At the January 17, 2022 Council meeting, one (1) Councillor position was declared vacant, and Council considered staff report FAF.22.012 Options to Fill Vacant Councillor Seat for the balance of the 2018 to 2022 Term of Council. Council opted to proceed with Option #2B, "Appointment by Call for Applications" to fill the vacant Councillor Seat, with the application to include the option to declare whether the applicant intends to run in the 2022 Town of The Blue Mountains Municipal Election.

At the January 31, 2022 meeting, Council considered staff report FAF.22.021 titled “Appointment Procedure to Fill Vacant Councillor Seat” and approved the procedure to fill the vacancy.
