For perhaps the first time in its 60-year history, the City of Langley is holding a byelection.
The announcement comes after Coun. Dave Hall resigned his seat in November, due to a battle with cancer.
The byelection for a new councillor will be held on Feb. 27, 2016, with several advanced polling stations available two weeks prior.
The nomination period is open from Jan. 12 to 22, and nomination packages are available now at City Hall, 20399 Douglas Cres.
According to records that date back to 1993, no byelection has been held in the City of Langley prior to this.
