Alberton council deliberated over the three applications to fill the vacancy on council in-camera last night.
When it returned to an open session, council passed a resolution appointing Elizabeth “Liz” Logue-Baxter to the seat.
The names of the other two applicants will not be released per their request.
Logue-Baxter is active on the Alberton Emergency Management Program Committee, has been active in organizing recreation committee events for the past few years, and has shown keen interest in the municipality and how it works.
She was selected as the appointee because of her community involvement, as well as because she will represent a young family demographic—an element currently missing on council.
It also was council’s desire to encourage younger residents to start taking an interest in serving on council.
Council also believes Logue-Baxter will do a good job serving in the best interests of the municipality.
She will take her Oath of Office at the start of the Oct. 12 regular council meeting so she immediately can begin serving as Alberton’s newest councillor.
