Cory Abels is resigning from his position as city councilman. The city council will approve his resignation at their next meeting. Abels resigned so that he can pursue a new career in Minnesota.
The council will consider appointing a Clarion resident to fill out the remainder of Abels’ term, which ends on December 31. Anyone looking to fill Abels’ vacancy will have to meet the same qualifications as a candidate seeking election. The council may choose not to fill the empty seat.
