Greg Vandermeulen

The R.M. of Rhineland has a new reeve, but replacing Don Wiebe as councillor will require an election.

Wiebe stepped down as Ward 5 councillor and was acclaimed as reeve.

However, four people have put their names forward to take his place as councillor.

Candidates include Mike Toews, Jake Heppner, Victor Rupps and Ron Smith.

The R.M. of Rhineland's Ward 5 makes up the northeast corner of the municipality, bordered by the R.M.s of Montcalm and Morris on the east and north sides. It extends south to a line one mile south and one mile west of Altona. The major community in the ward is Rosenfeld.

Voters will head to the polls on Dec. 5 to elect their next Ward 5 councillor.
