Commissioners to hold by-election after member resigns

Castletown Town Commissioners will hold a by-election after a member of the board resigned.

The local authority announced James Barrow is stepping down from the Commissioners for personal reasons.

Mr Barrow was elected during last April's local authority vote, and had been due to serve until 2020.

Full details of the by-election to fill the vacant seat will be released in due course, but prospective candidates can contact the Town Clerk for more details.
