Bible Hill Village Commission by-election scheduled for August 18th

Two people are in the running for a seat on the Bible Hill Village Commission.

Dale McLeod and Knickolle Pitcher are the candidates for the by-election, which has been scheduled for August 18th.

The nomination period closed on Thursday, and the term for the seat runs until June of next year.

An advance poll has been scheduled for 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on August 14th at the Village Office on Pictou Road, with the election day poll open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The by-election was called after Mitchell Bell resigned as commissioner to become the village Clerk & Treasurer late last month.

Tom Burke returned to the Village Commission after a by-election win last month, while Kevin Kennedy won re-election in June.
