A by-election will likely be held later this year to replace Beva Hamilton on Ponoka town council.
Mayor Larry Henkelman said he would like to see a by-election held as soon as possible.
The matter may have been added to last night’s council agenda.
Henkelman said the town is dealing with a number of important issues and committee work that requires debate by a full council.
With the mayor and five councillors motions are lost on a tie vote.
