Montrose residents are casting their votes on who will fill the vacant councillor seat.

Four community members are running in the village by-election, following the resignation of Coun. Mark Reid. Former council members Don Berriault and Mike Walsh are joined by Dwayne McDonnell and Lynda Bouthillier.

Advance voting began Wednesday at the village hall and resumes Jan. 14 and Jan. 15 during regular office hours, and on general voting day, Jan. 16, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.

With three years left in the four-year civic role, Montrose was required to fill the empty councillor seat by acclamation or through a byelection if more than one person applied for the position.
