Councillor Steve Fairbairn was sworn into the office in Elkford on April 10 at his first meeting of council.

Councillor Fairbairn was appointed to sit on the Southern Rocky Mountain Advisory Committee on behalf of the District of Elkford.

“It is exciting to have another new face on council,” said Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher. “He is a younger gentleman and an active teacher who brings a youthful perspective to the table. I look forward to the next two plus years of working with him.”

Councillor Fairbairn was a member of the Citizens’ Advisory Committee and the Urban Deer Management Advisory Committee, but was removed from both committees as other members of council are already appointed to them. As the membership of the committees must consist of the members of the public, the District will advertise to solicit two new committee members.
