Kirksville City Councilmember Resigns

John Gardner will be sworn-in to the Kirksville City Council on Monday following his win yesterday in the Municipal Election. One of his first issues will be helping to appoint someone to another City Council Seat, as Chuck Long resigned at this week’s meeting. Long said his resignation had to be effective immediately because he is taking a new job near the Lake of the Ozarks and will be moving there at the end of this month. Long joined the council in 2016, served as mayor in 2018, and was re-elected to the City Council in 2019.
