BUCHANAN — Longtime city employee and volunteer Warren Weaver has resigned from the Buchanan City Commission.
Weaver submitted his letter of resignation to the commission Friday. It is effective today.
The commission unanimously approved his resignation during its regularly scheduled meeting Monday; Weaver was not present. His letter did not indicate his reason for resigning.
“He’s been a walking encyclopedia for us,” Mayor Carla Cole said.
“He’s had an awfully long time of service in the city,” Commissioner David Hagey said. “He just kind of slipped out. I’m kind of surprised he was just out in a puff of smoke.”
Weaver served for about two years on the city commission. He also served on the planning commission and as building inspector and chief of police, among other capacities within the city over a more than 30-year period.
According to the city’s charter, the commission has 30 days from the date of its acknowledgment of the resignation to fill the position.
Candidates for the city commissioner position must submit applications to city hall by 5 p.m. Monday, March 21.
The commission will appoint a commissioner during its regular meeting Monday, March 28.
