Statement from the Town of Balgonie

Town Councillor Kelvin Solie submitted his resignation from Council on February 29, 2024. This will be formally recorded at the March 11, 2024, meeting of Council.

Councillor Solie has been a valuable member of Town Council during his terms of office from 2012-2016, 2016-2020 and 2020-2024. In each election, Kelvin Solie received a majority of the councillor-at-large votes.

His positive approach and good-hearted nature have made him a great advocate for the ratepayers and ambassador for the Town of Balgonie. As a Council member, Kelvin has demonstrated his commitment to the Town of Balgonie in preparing for meetings, asking questions, and offering practical solutions to meet the needs of the community.

He has served most recently as the Town’s Deputy Mayor and has served on the following committees: Finance; Protective Services; Equipment, Maintenance and Engineering; Public Works & Utilities; and, Planning and Development.

During his time on Council, he has been integral in decision making for many large infrastructure projects such as the 2013 Water Project (supply line and reservoir), 2017 Lagoon Expansion, 2019 Administration Building Renovation and additional sanitary sewer improvements from 2020-2022. A strong advocate for emergency services and recreation, Kelvin has been actively involved in making choices which improve our community and enhance its safety. As a resident of this community, he has the reputation of being a friendly, thoughtful and an all-around great guy.

Although he will be missed at the Council table, his friendship with Council, Staff and Volunteer Responders will continue past the work of operating a Town.

Councillor Solie, we thank you for your faithful service to the Town of Balgonie and we send you all the best.

Town of Balgonie, Council, Staff and Volunteer Fire Department and First Responders

Pay with Plastiq

Credit cards are now accepted. All fees are paid by the cardholder. Payments may take 3-5 business days to process. The Town of Balgonie is avoiding passing on the cost of card payments to all residents, so those wishing to pay by credit card or debit card will be charged a fee. This fee is charged by Plastiq, not the Town of Balgonie. (2.9% for credit cards, 1% for debit cards).
