THE vacant Mablethorpe Town Council North Ward seat left by Coun Carl Tebbutt last month is now open to be filled.
Notices are displayed at the town council and an election could be called by ten or more ward voters. This must be done in writing by January 23 to the Returning Officer, East Lindsey District Council, Tedder Hall, Manby Park, Louth, Lincolnshire.
If the vacancy is not filled through an election then the co-option process will be used. This would see the town councillors vote to elect the new member.
Coun Tebbutt resigned from the council recently after many years serving the local area. He was a member of the planning committee, administration committee and was the Mablethorpe playing fields representative.
