The Township of Lake of Bays has announced its candidates for the Sinclair-Finlayson seat.
Last Friday the application process closed and eight candidates were announced. The township says the nominees are Rick Lloyd Brooks, Gareth Cockwell, Charles Cooper, Howard S. Elliott, David Hunter, Irvine Payne, Michael Pepper and David Walker.
Lake of Bays Mayor Bob Young says he did not expect such a high number for the position.
A special council meeting will be held on Tuesday at 9:00am at Council Chambers in Dwight.
Staff will hear a 10-minute speech from each applicant. A vote will be held at the end of the meeting to appoint the newest member.
