Did you know?

Employees of a municipality (except the Chief Adminsitrative Officer) or a regional municipal body (e.g. Planning Commission, Conservation District, etc.) may run in an election if they have taken a leave of absence. If you are a municipal employee and wish to run for your municipal council, speak to your CAO.  If the position is volunteer and is not considered an employee (i.e. Volunteer Fire Chief), they may serve on Council without taking a leave of absence from the position.
