Montrose voters will be back at the polls in a few weeks after four people threw their hats into the byelection ring.

Montrose voters will be back at the polls in a few weeks after four people threw their hats into the byelection ring.

Former Coun. Don Berriault is up for another go after being out of the position for one year; Lynda Bouthillier, is ready for another try after being narrowly edged out in last year’s civic election.

Dwayne McDonnell and Mike Walsh round out the group of candidates vying for the one seat made available in late fall following the withdrawal of Coun. Mark Reid.

Over the next few weeks, the village will be printing ballots, finishing notices and getting set up for advanced polling opportunities, confirmed Montrose Chief Election Officer, Bryan Teasdale.

Residents can cast a ballot at the village hall Jan. 6 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., Jan. 14 and Jan. 15 during regular office hours, and then on General Voting Day, Jan. 16 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.

“The (candidate) names are currently posted at the village office,” Teasdale added. “Further information on the election in general, such as the Notice of Election, (will be published) on Dec. 23 and Dec. 30.”

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.

Village costs are estimated to be approximately $4,000.
