Council member resigns

Bob Shaughnessy

Iola City Councilman Bob Shaughnessy, who has represented Iolans in the northeast part of town since 2013, resigned from the Council Monday.

Shaughnessy, has frequently missed meetings, mostly due to his work as a residential contractor. Shaughnessy attended the first Council meeting of the year on Jan. 8, but missed the subsequent seven regular meetings, a special Feb. 5 meeting and a March 15 strategic planning session.

“We wish him the best of luck,” Mayor Jon Wells said at Monday’s meeting. “It wasn’t a decision he made lightly.”
