The city of Akeley is without a mayor.

Former Mayor Jerry Tatro submitted his resignation July 28 because he’d moved out of the city limits.


Council member Trygve Karl is now acting mayor, but he will be there only until the November election. The city declared a vacancy Wednesday night at its meeting.

Council member Brian Hitchcock filed for the mayor’s position and will run unopposed in November in a special election.
