Wade Bearchell has resigned from Olds town council.
The town received notification Monday that Bearchell is stepping down as councillor for personal reasons.
Olds must hold a byelection within 90 days. Due to the Christmas season, an extension will be requested through Alberta Municipal Affairs.
“I would like to thank Wade for all his hard work and dedication over the past nine years,” said Mayor Michael Muzychka. “Through his commitment and hard work, Wade has made Olds a better place to work and live in.”
More information about the byelection will be published on the town’s website as details become available.
