E.V. council seat open

Eden Valley council member Eric Reetz (third from left) read his letter of resignation from the council at their meeting Wednesday, March
W-CIMG20496. His resignation is effective April 1. A special election must be held to fill his seat on the council. He resigned from the fire department, where he was training director, on Monday. And he resigned from the Eden Valley American Legion, where he was commander, on Friday; Darrell Ward will step into that position. Reetz has accepted a city police job in Washington state, and he and his son Ethan will move there later this month.
