The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - BY NI­CHOLAS MERCER

The res­ig­na­tion of Coun. Michael Fowler has left the Bri­gus town coun­cil with a va­cancy.

Fowler, who­elected to coun­cil in Septem­ber 2009, ten­dered his res­ig­na­tion early in Oc­to­ber.

“It was per­sonal rea­sons and stuff like that, he felt he had to step aside,”said Bri­gus town clerk Wayne Rose. Rose said Fowler no longer re­sides in Bri­gus. With Fowler re­sign­ing, it forces coun­cil into call­ing a by­elec­tion.

Nom­i­na­tion­swill be re­ceived Tues­day, Nov. 8 be­tween the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Still on coun­cil are Mayor By­ron Rod­way, Deputy Mayor Ralph Trick­ett and coun­cil­lors Lorne Youden, Greg His­cock, Faith Roberts-pike and Pauline Mercer.
