The Municipality of Dysart et al has a new Ward 2 Councillor.

Dennis Casey is a former councillor, and he will be appointed the position at the next council meeting in December.

At the October 24th council meeting, Derek Knowles announced his resignation because he was relocating out of the Municipality. Council decided to appoint Casey to fill the vacancy instead of holding a by-election.

Reeve Murray Fearrey says Casey has been involved, and it’s a simple and easy adjustment. Councillor Susan Norcross says she supports this decision 100 per cent.

The Ward 2 Councillor chairs the Dysart et al Economic Development Committee as well.
