Lanesboro City Council Report

The City Council will become Dollar Less
First term council member resigns to go back to school
By John P. LevellMonday, January 14, 2002

January 7 The first Lanesboro City Council meeting of 2002, with Mayor John Brose presiding and all council members in attendance, proved to be a laid back, incredibly long, and overall a comparatively humdrum affair. In fact, the evenings most momentous event was reserved for the meetings bitter end, when Councilman John Dollar rather unexpectedly submitted his formal Letter of Resignation.

When queried as to his reasons for doing so, Dollar stated that recent cutbacks on the part of his former employer has left him no alternative other than relocating to Austin in order to attend classes designed specifically to assist him in finding future employment. This statement largely mirrored Dollars official letter of resignation, which has been reprinted in its entirety below.

"To the City of Lanesboro,

Due to my recent employment status and relocation for schooling, I will be resigning from the Lanesboro City Council and the Planning and Zoning Committee. I would like to thank all those that I have worked with over the past year and also the towns people that voted for my election as Lanesboro City Council member.
Respectfully,

John Dollar - January 2, 2002"


Dollar further noted that his forced relocation does, in reality, make him ineligible to hold his council position. Dollar did agree to continue to serve until he actually moves, which will hopefully be long enough for a replacement to be found.

"In choosing my successor," Dollar added, "I hope the council will consider the next highest vote getter from last years election."

Citing precedence, however, the council instead decided to publish a notice of the impending vacancy and then to simply appoint a replacement for the remainder of this year from the ensuing list of interested candidates. This would effectively carry the City through until elections are held this November, when the open council position would be included on the ballot.

Councilman Cropp then moved "to regretfully accept John Dollars resignation." This motion was seconded by Peggy Hanson and passed unanimously.

Addressing Dollar directly, Cropp added that "serving together has been fun," a statement which generated some good-natured humor among all in attendance.
