The Town of Nipawin’s council meeting on Thursday, Oct. 11 saw one familiar face absent, and it will be a permanent absence.

Coun. Ismael Aliguyon handed in his resignation letter on Oct. 9 where council accepted it during Thursday’s meeting.

Mayor Rennie Harper noted council accepted Aliguyon’s resignation with sincerity and regret.

In the letter read by Harper during Thursday’s meeting, Aliguyon mentioned raising a young family and time constraints as some of the personal reasons for stepping down.

Council voted in a majority to hold a by-election for the vacant council seat on Apr. 3, 2019 but can change the date at any time.

Aliguyon is the second councillor to resign from the Nipawin council after Ray Serack stepped down in January due to personal issues.
