Following the resignation of a community councillor in Acharacle, the council has fallen into abeyance as its membership has fallen below half. That means new nominations are needed to re-establish the council. From my short time as a Highland councillor, I know the hard-work that this council undertakes on behalf of local residents, so it is vital it is up-and-running quickly.
Anyone on the electoral register for the area can be nominated, the completed forms must be returned by 4.00 pm on Wednesday 20 February 2013 to Dot Ferguson, Ward Manager; Lochaber House, High Street, Fort William, PH33 6EL (Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org).
If there are more nominations than available places on the Community Council, an election will be held on Thursday 21 March 2013.
