BY-Election 2020

Due to COVID-19 the Municipal By-election was postponed in April 2020.  The Village of Irma was granted an extension by Ministerial Order MSD: 021/20 that extended the time-frame for the by-election.  The Village of Irma now can wait until the next regular election in 2021.  A extension of 21 months was granted.  Council decided at the October 13th Council Meeting not to proceed with a By-election and wait until October 2021 elections.  Given the current health climate, costs and time frames  this is a prudent decision that saves the ratepayer money and still ensures open government.   Contact the office via email at cao@irma.ca if you have any questions.

Below is the Ministerial Order from Municipal Affairs.
