Zoning officer resigns
Marion streets director and building inspector Marty Fredrickson resigned last Wednesday as planning and zoning administrator while keeping his other city duties.
Mayor Mary Olson wanted the council to look at options for the next appointee, such as pay for the position and a refined list of duties. The council hopes to hear recommendations for the position at the next council meeting.
Chad Gormley also resigned from the planning commission with plans to move to Hiawatha. He was appointed to the planning board in 2011.
Olson appointed Greg Carlson, co-owner of Carlsons’ Grocery, to take Gormley’s place.
