Mayor to run again


Fort Frances Mayor Roy Avis filed his papers this morning to seek another term in the Oct. 25 municipal election.
Avis has been on council for the past 13 years, the first nine as a councillor and the last four as mayor.
As previously reported, Coun. Sharon Tibbs filed to run for town council again back in late March.
No other incumbent has yet filed to run again, nor have any challengers, as of this morning.
Anyone interested in running for mayor, council, or the two local school boards must file their papers with the clerk at the Civic Centre (or their respective municipality) prior to 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 10.
Withdrawal of any nominations also must be made by then.
Election day will be held Oct. 25. The first day of the new council term will be Dec. 1.
Municipal terms are four years after being increased from three just prior to the 2006 election.
