Mayor resigns, development possible
Monday night's regular meeting of the Velva City Commission opened with the resignation of Mayor Ken Fox.
"As of right now, I resign the position of mayor and all the committees I serve on," he said. "So thank you and I'll leave."
Fox then left the meeting without further explanation.
The commission's vice chairman Scott Blotter asked for a motion to accept the mayor's resignation, but Commissioner JD Larson moved to table acceptance until the resignation was submitted in written form. The motion passed.
