Results are unofficial just yet but the Town of Rimbey has announced Rick Pankiw will serve as Mayor for another term, with Lana Curle, Jamie Coston, Wayne Clark, Gayle Rondeel serving as Councillors.

At this point Pankiw says it is too early to be certain what projects Council will tackle but he says he plans to continue the street light project and also wants to work with the new Councillors and see why they ran and what concerns they have.
