His achievements as an elected official and Mayor have set a successful path for the Town of Smooth Rock Falls, and he will be missed greatly.

    At the February 16th 2021 Council Meeting, the Town Council discussed the vacancy and are pleased to announce the resolution that was passed:

    Whereas Council has declared the Mayor’s seat vacant;
