Five candidates are looking for a seat on Redwater Town Council.
Tina Cosby, Dwayne Spicer, Allan Nielsen, Joe Melnick and Gary Kuefler are in the running after Dody Kluttig announced her resignation on August 27.
"Right now we have five excellent candidates and any one of them can do a good job for us. So I'm excited for it," said mayor Mel Smith.
A forum for council candidates will be held at the Redwater Legion Hall on Thursday (Oct.18) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
"This is the only opportunity that you may get to hear the candidates and their platforms," added Smith.
An advanced vote will be held on October 20, with the official by-election being held on October 29.
