The candidates are in for the Town of North River.
Nominations for the next round of municipal elections closed at 8 p.m. on Tuesday (Aug. 27) in the Conception Bay North community.
Returning their names to the ballot are Mayor Blair Hurley, along with fellow incumbents Brian Hurley, Dwight Snow, Sheila Power and John Newell.
Adding their names to the list of candidates are Rita Greenland, Edward Dawson, James Cummings and Patrick MacKey. Each have previous experience as municipal officials in North River.
Not returning to municipal politics will be Coun. Pauline Dawson, as she declined to pursue another term in office.
Dawson has been a part of the town council in North River for the past 29 years, both as a councillor and as the town clerk.
This vacancy left by Pauline creates an opportunity for a new face in the council chambers.
Town officials are awaiting word from the Department of Municipal Affairs on the status of one other possible candidate.
The residents of North River will have the opportunity to vote for their next town council on Sept. 24.
