The city of Port Moody has called a byelection for Sept. 30 to fill the council seat left vacant by Rick Glumac, who was elected as an NDP MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam in the May 9 B.C. election.

Glumac, who defeated Liberal incumbent Linda Reimer in the provincial election, announced he was leaving council last month.

On general voting day, there will be three polling stations: Port Moody Recreation Complex (300 Ioco Road), Heritage Mountain Community Centre (200 Panorama Place), and Glenayre Community Centre (492 Glencoe Drive).

The chief election officer will receive nominations for the office of councillor from Aug. 15-25.
