Vernon council will hear at its Sept. 27 meeting when a byelection should be held to fill the seat vacated by Coun. Dalvir Nahal.

Nahal died recently after a battle with cancer.

Because the position became vacant before Jan. 1 of a municipal election year, a byelection must be held, according to the Community Charter.

The report will recommend a proposed byelection day.

General local elections are set for Oct. 15, 2022.
