SHELBURNE - There was a rearrangement at the council table on Nov. 3 during a special council meeting for the swearing-in ceremony for the Municipality of Shelburne.

Former clerk at the municipality Penny Smith was voted in by council as the new warden for the municipality.

She replaces Roger Taylor who served for one term as warden. Taylor remains on council as a councillor

David Levy, a returning councillor, has been voted in as deputy warden.

Others on council include Terry McIntyre, John Roscoe, Norm Wallet and Doris Townsend.

Voters did not have to go to the polls to elect a new council in the Municipality of Shelburne.

Everyone made it onto the council – both incumbents and newcomers – by acclamation.

Smith says she feels very priviledged to be elected warden by council.

“ “I am looking forward to working with all of council and our CAO and will do my best to represent the municipality well,” she said. 

Smith said she has many ideas moving ahead. The vision for the next four years, she said, will come from the community and council.

  “I believe I bring a positive, can-do attitude to the council table and I’ll work tirelessly for our residents,” she said.

At the special meeting council approved the terms of reference for several new committees that will involve community members only. These committees will soon be advertised on the municipality’s website and Facebook page.
