Councilmembers Dan Marler resigned rather than face a recall - petitioners appeared to have enough signatures to get on the ballot. The position will be filled by an appointment by the council.
The issue was a vote to allow the City Manager to return to work after he was charged with third degree assault (which was over slamming the brakes while the manager was in the car with his daughter). The Manager was found not guilty in the trial. One of the recall leaders is a former council member.
Still no word on the recall efforts against Councilmembers Kevin Lindell and Lisa Northrup.
