FERRIS TOWNSHIP — During a special meeting Tuesday evening, the Ferris Township Board accepted the resignation of longtime Supervisor Brian Stratton.
The township received Stratton’s letter last Thursday.
The letter didn’t cite a specific reason for leaving, but Trustee Dan Calverley believed it was related to personal circumstances.
Board members expressed how sad they were to see Stratton leave local government after what they estimated to be around 30 years of involvement. Stratton, who resides in Edmore, was re-elected as supervisor last November.
Trustee Randy Stearns was appointed as interim supervisor. Another meeting to appoint a permanent supervisor is scheduled for 5 p.m. April 17 after the township board has had a chance to collect applications from interested residents.
