An emergency has been declared pursuant to section 53 of the Municipal Elections Act by Kevin Klingenberg, Acting County Clerk.  The declaration was determined necessary after consultation with the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit on the additional requirements needed to safely administer a by-election during the province-wide lockdown.

The health, safety, and councillor representation of Ward 2 residents are the primary consideration of the emergency declaration.

Postponing the by-election has not occurred, but remains an option until it can be determined the Ward 2 by-election can continue to be run safely and on time during the lockdown.
