Dep. Mayor Jeanette Ruud has stepped down from Hughenden village council due to personal reasons, leaving a vacancy on the panel of three for future decision making within the community.
Nominations opened as of June 17 with Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Richard Lavoie saying there are a few interested people but anyone is allowed to put their name forward.
At a public open house, roughly 30 people attended.
CAO Lavoie stated that of those people who showed up, at least two have taken a serious look at running in the election.
Others have called in asking for more information.
The nomination process ends July 30 at noon with the election date following on Sept. 10.
Councillor responsibilities include participating in community functions, committees, and biweekly council meetings, as well as help solve requests and issues facing the village.
