Deadline for county council applications is March 9

WELLINGTON CTY. - This Friday is the deadline for anyone interested in becoming Wellington County council’s Ward 5 representative.

The vacancy on council created by the resignation of councillor Rob Black will be filled by appointment, and nominees are being accepted until March 9.

Black resigned from council last month after being named to the Senate of Canada by the governor general.

County council determined it will fill the vacancy by appointment, rather than an election, as provided for in the Municipal Act.

The term of the open position will be from the anticipated date of council appointment on March 29 to the end of the council term on Nov. 30.

A nominee for municipal office must be a qualified municipal elector, meaning:

- 18 years of age or older;

- a Canadian citizen;

- a resident in the County of Wellington, or an owner or tenant of land in the county, or the spouse of an owner or tenant; and

- not prohibited from voting under any other act or disqualified from holding municipal office.

Interested nominees are requested to submit an expression of interest by 2pm on March 9, along with a completed consent of nominee form and a declaration of qualification, through the County of Wellington clerk’s office. Certified registered nominees will be interviewed by the warden’s advisory committee.

For further information or to complete a consent of nominee form and a declaration of qualification, contact county clerk Donna Bryce, County of Wellington, 74 Woolwich Street, Guelph, 519-837-2600 ext. 2520 or email
