One person was nominated for councillor, so there will be no municipal election to fill the vacant councillor position.

Kyle Thompson, owner of Monster Industries and partner in Pleasant Valley properties that owns the bowling alley and theatre, is elected to council, said Chris Sandve, chief elections officer.

The vacancy on the Houston town council opened on Nov. 2 when Councillor Bob Wheaton resigned.

Sandve says Thompson will take the oath of office and be installed as a Houston councillor no earlier than Feb. 18, which was the day previously set for the elections.
