A date has been set for the municipal byelection in Moose Jaw as the city begins the search for a new mayor.
Tolmie won the nomination for the Moose Jaw—Lake Centre—Lanigan riding in early August.
“I’m proud of our community. I’m proud of people being able to put down their own personal ambitions and to be able to work together and to make life better for others within the city,” Tolmie said last week.
“I’m proud of our council, I’m proud of our achievements and proud of our administration. We’ve been extremely focused these last number of years to clean up our city, to address infrastructure challenges, to take things head-on, provide solutions and that’s essential in a community.”
City council elected councillor Dawn Luhning as acting mayor on Aug. 17. She will serve as mayor until the byelection is held and a new mayor is sworn in.
The total estimated cost to conduct the byelection is just shy of $60,000.
