The Chico City Council might have one less member after next Tuesday’s meeting.
The council agenda for Tuesday, Feb. 4, includes acting on the resignation of a council member. Although the agenda didn’t specify which council member was resigning, Mayor J.D. Clark said Friday Sue Manning is expected to resign due to health reasons.
“She’s been an incredible servant for the community, and I will miss her input on the council,” Clark said in a message Friday, adding that she has “been a strong advocate for Chico.”
The resignation is expected to take effect immediately.
Clark said he will suggest the council wait to see how May election filings shape up before making a decision on how to fill the open seat. The council will call an election for three other council seats currently held by Karen Garrison, Aracely Cuevas and Louise Gossett.
Other agenda items include approving the annual audit, rescheduling next month’s council meeting, repairing or replacing the heating and cooling system at city hall, adding Veterans Day to the city holiday schedule, an owner-requested zoning variance and regular department monthly reports.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. at Chico City Hall.
