Community Council Elections

Can you help keep our community going?

Nominations to the Community Council are now open and all residents  of the ward (Bow of Fife, Letham, Monimail and Fernie) are invited to stand. 

We have not had an election in many years and Community Councillors have been appointed simply on nomination. 

Monimail Community Council is however one of the most proactive in the region and has camapaigned successfully on a number of issues for the good of the Community. Councillors are expected to attend bimonthly meetings and faithfully represent the interests of the community on a wide range of issues. 

If you’d be prepared to stand please contact the Secretary Karen Vaughan at john.vaughan@the-vaughans.org and we’ll get a form to you.
