Councillor Wayne Olechow is once again representing the people of Bruderheim.
Before the by-election, Olechow was on an eight month break from city council for personal reasons.
"Then there was an opportunity to come back, so I decided to jump back in."
His reasoning for returning was to support the community, help it grow and succeed. Some of his ideas include adding more street lights by walking paths and working with groups in town to lower the cost of activities.
Olechow has plenty of experience to bring to the table. He's lived in Bruderheim for 37 years and was on council for two terms prior to his break.
That doesn't mean there are no challenges ahead.
"I'm just getting back into it and catching up to where everybody is at right now."
He is also looking forward to working with a few new councillors who weren't there when he was last in office.
Aside from his council duties, Olechow is also part of the library board, the minor sports league and frequently volunteers around Bruderheim.
"I'm just looking forward to jumping in and being involved again."
His first council meeting was on Wednesday (Aug 15).
