Health concerns prompt Akeley mayor to resign
Akeley mayor Scott Vettleson resigned Wednesday night, citing an "unexpected long-term health issue" as grounds for the decision.
The council appointed council member Jennifer Mitchell to fill the position, and will advertise for a replacement.
Mitchell was appointed to fill a council position that was vacated when Eric Sjolin resigned earlier this year.
"I apologize to the citizens of Akeley that I can't continue," Vettleson said.
