The Town of Millet has entered into an agreement with Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools regarding the upcoming 2017 elections.

Millet CAO Teri Pelletier explained during council’s May 24 meeting the agreement would allow the municipal election authority and the school election authority to hold their respective elections in conjunction.

With both elections running together the two entities will be able to split the cost of the elections process 50/50.

Mayor Tony Wadsworth questioned what would occur in the case of acclamation, where no more than one person has stood for an elected post, on one of the party’s behalf.

The agreement states, “In the event of acclamation, where no vote need be undertaken the elected authority will pay zero per cent of the costs.”
