Just weeks after the municipal election, Sturgeon County is planning another one.
 
Division 6 councillor Ronald Shaw has resigned from Sturgeon County council. He was a new addition after being voted in on Oct.18.
 
In a letter to the county's CAO, Shaw noted that his decision was for personal reasons and is effective immediately.
 
With this resignation, a by-election will be required for Division 6. It will be held on Dec.13.
 
Residents who want to run for the vacant council seat will have until Nov.15 at noon to submit their nominations.
 
Until a new councillor is elected, Division 6 residents north of Heartland Drive can contact deputy mayor Neal Comeau, and residents south of Heartland Drive can contact councillor Dan Derouin.
