On Aug. 19, the Arlington Village Board of Trustees accepted the resignation of board member Jeff Lindley.
Lindley, who has served on the board since 2016, cited employment and health reasons in his resignation letter to the board, saying they "will now allow me to be a productive and active member of the board."
Lindley offered his letter of resignation in person at the start of the monthly board meeting. As he left he shook the hand of each board member after they "regretfully” accepted his resignation and thanked him for his service.
"Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of Arlington's future and the board," Lindley wrote in his letter.
With Lindley's resignation, the board is now accepting applications from interested residents in finishing out the term, which expires in December 2020.
According to village ordinance, any village resident who is a U.S. citizen and a registered voter is eligible to be a candidate for appointment to complete the unexpired term. Anyone interested in serving as a board member, may submit a letter of interest to the village clerk at the Arlington Village office, 401W. Elm St. Questions can be directed to 402-478-4212.
A nominee will be presented to the board for consideration at the regular board meeting Sept. 16.
