Thomas back in mayor’s chair
WOODY POINT — Residents of Woody Point won’t need to vote in the municipal election because their council has already been established.
With only seven candidates coming forward, council was acclimated on Sept. 3 and sworn in Thursday night by the town clerk. Ken Thomas will serve a second term as mayor, and Allan Wilton will serve as deputy mayor for his second term on council.
For the other council positions, John Gillam and Charlie Payne will return for the new term, and first time councillors Terry Young, Greg Osmond and Fred McLean will occupy seats in council chambers.
“We now have a few things to do, we have to set up committees and we’ll be working on a new Municipal Plan,” said Thomas. “The one we’ve been working off of is dated 1986 and other than a few core items it’s just not workable anymore.”
Woody Point’s next council meeting is set for Sept. 16. Municipal elections take place Sept. 24.
