Municipal officials in Rhineland are shifting to plan B in order to fill a vacant spot on the L.U.D. of Gretna committee.

Reeve Don Wiebe says the move comes after no candidates came forward in a by-election last month intended to replace Jeff Dyck who stepped down after moving out of the community.

As a result, officials have agreed to try and appoint someone to the post.

A ist of four to five potential appointees has been drawn up and Wiebe says C.A.O. Mike Rempel will get in touch to gauge each person's level of interest in joining the committee.

Wiebe hopes the vacancy will be filled by the end of the year.
