City Hall has set a date for Grand Forks’ council byelection.
Voters will elect former councillor Rod Zielinski’s replacement Saturday, Dec. 5, according to Deputy Corporate Officer Kevin McKinnon.
An advance poll will be held 10 days prior, on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Polls will be managed by Chief Election Officer (CEO) Patti Ferguson, appointed by council Monday, Oct. 5.

The nomination period will run for ten days after Oct. 20. Nomination papers will be available at City Hall and on the City’s website starting 9:00 a.m. Oct. 20.
The City’s estimated budget for the byelection is between $35,00 and $40,000, according to another report on Monday’s council agenda.
