Town of Olds - Council Back Up To Full Strength Following By-Election

The town of Olds once again has a full roster of councillors. After winning the by-election, Mitch Thomson was sworn in on Monday, January 27th as the town's newest councillor.

All seven seats around the Olds council table are full again.

The newest councillor - Mitch Thomson - was sworn in last week following his victory in January's by-election.

Mayor Michael Muzychka says it is always nice to have an odd number to decide matters with a clear mandate from council.

Mayor Muzychka discusses why the town of Olds decided to have a by-election.

He notes a total of seven candidates ran in the by-election to fill the vacancy created when councillor Wade Bearchell tendered his resignation in October.

The next general election is slated for the fall of 2021.
