The Town of Sundre is holding a byelection to fill a council spot.

First-term Coun. Michael Baird decided to step down because of course load demands for a SAIT program he is taking.

Council voted last week to fill his spot on council by holding a byelection on Nov. 21. Nominations will close on Oct. 24.

Council had the option of not filling the seat because the next municipal election will be held within 18 months.

Sundre has a seven-person council headed by Mayor Annettee Clews.
