Grand Falls-Windsor Mayor Al Hawkins said he hopes the current boom in construction, as shown in the first quarter report, continues for the rest of 2012. The value of building permits has increased by 440 per cent this year as compared to the same period in 2011.
It's official, incumbent Grand Falls-Windsor Mayor Al Hawkins will remain in his position for another term – it was announced earlier this evening that Hawkins assumed the office by acclamation after no other candidates put forward their name for the mayoral position.
The final list of candidates for the 2013 Grand Falls-Windsor municipal election was also announced on Tuesday evening. Current councillors that will be seeking re-election are Jean Buffett-Mercer, Amy Coady-Davis, Darren Finn, and Bruce Moores.
