The Municipality of Red Lake has named Sandy Middleton as their new interim mayor. Middleston had been serving as deputy mayor, after being on city council.
Middleton says that once the current mayoral term is over, July 24, he will vacate the position, as required by municipal law. Council will then appoint a mayor internally.
This comes following the passing of long-time Red Lake Mayor Phil Vinet. Vinet passed away earlier this month, after a battle with cancer. It was his third term as mayor.
