Corrine Collura has stepped down from Maple Creek Town Council. It is understood she tendered her resignation several weeks ago.
Her decision was accepted with regret at Tuesday evening’s Council meeting.
A by-election will now be held on September 22.
Collura was elected to Town Council for the first time in the November 9, 2020 municipal election. She got 397 votes.
Her father, Len Barkman, was also elected, garnering 421 votes.
Collura, who has lived in Maple Creek for 10 years, helps her husband run their business, Isaac Collura Contracting. She also home-schools their five children.
As a Councillor, Collura was chairperson of the Transportation Committee, and a member of Health, Panning & Development and Parks, Recreation & Culture.
She was also the Council’s representative of the Maple Creek Chamber of Commerce.
At Tuesday’s Council meeting, Michelle McKenzie, the Mayor, paid tribute to Collura.
“Councillor Collura had some great ideas and was a positive face around the table,” she said. “She will be thoroughly missed.”
