Two of the nine members of the important City Planning Commission have resigned.
In a letter to Mayor Kay Halloran and the City Council, long-time commission member Carole Schmidt cites health and conflicts with her job as the reasons for her stepping down. Of note, Schmidt tells the city’s elected officials that she is now required to take vacation leave to attend commission meetings.
Also announcing her resignation from the commission is newer member Lisa-Marie Garlich, a community development planner.
In her resignation letter, Garlich says she has taken a job with the city of Marshalltown.
Those who would like to compete to replace Schmidt and Garlich can inquire at the mayor’s office, 286-5051.
