In a move that caught town officials by surprise, Oliver Springs Mayor Jerry Vann abruptly resigned Thursday night, shortly after the Town Council’s meeting began.
Just after the roll was called, Vann addressed the Council and others in attendance, telling them that after speaking with doctor and his family he has decided to resign due to health concerns.
After his message, Vann shook the hands of his fellow Council members, the city manager, and the city judge and left the Council meeting room. Officials told our partners at BB-TV that the announcement caught them by surprise.
The Council will have to appoint someone to serve as mayor through the next municipal election.
