The Newark City Council accepted the resignation of city administrator Diane Rasor Thursday night, officially ending her eight-year career in Newark.

In a special meeting, the city council voted 4-0 to accept the resignation. Rasor had been on administrative leave for the past six weeks.

“She’s done some good work for the city,” Newark Mayor Mark Wondolowski said. “That kind of work demands a certain level of respect. The city council still has respect for her. Things happen and people get to a point where they maybe need to go do something else. That’s where it ended up.”

Rasor tendered her resignation Tuesday, sending a letter to Wondolowski and the city council, resigning her post immediately.

Rasor said she was leaving due to a medical situation. She added that negotiations on her resignation had hit a standstill with the city. Rasor worked the last eight years in Newark.

“It was great. We accomplished a multitude of great things,” Rasor said. “The city improved dramatically in the last eight years, especially with Mayor [Gary] Van Wagner’s leadership.”

Before coming to Newark, Rasor worked in Haslet. She said she will likely retire after 23 years working in municipal government.

Wondolowski said there have been no applications to fill the now vacant position.
