When Prince Edward County Mayor Robert Quaiff takes a leave of absence as he runs as the Liberal candidate in the provincial election next June, it means someone needs to step in as acting mayor.
During their Committee of the Whole meeting on Thursday afternoon at Shire Hall, Clerk Kim White says there are couple of options available.
She says Mayor Quaiff can opt to elect someone to take on the role of mayor, or he can elect not to do so, leaving the decision up to council.
Councillor Roy Pennell told those in council chambers he felt they should make it simple and fair and have council elect someone to fill the vacant spot.
White says the Mayor has elected to select someone to fill the vacancy, which will then leave a seat at the table open which will then have to be filled.
The report with all the options available came forward as an information item and no further action will be taken until Mayor Quaiff takes his leave of absence.
