ARLINGTON – City Council member Joshua Roundy announced his resignation for personal reasons effective immediately.

Roundy was elected in November 2017.

Roundy thanked city staff, the council, the mayor and voters. “I have valued my time on the council and wish everyone the best moving forward.”

Mayor Barb Tolbert said, “I appreciate Josh’s service to the Arlington community and understand his need to put his family first.”

City Administrator Paul Ellis said the council will discuss options on filling the vacancy at the Jan. 21 meeting.

The tentative schedule would advertise and seek applicants between late January and Feb. 5. Council would next review the submittals, hold council candidate interviews in a public meeting, then vote to appoint the successful nominee by March 2.

The council has 90 days to appoint a city resident to fill the vacancy, meaning no later than April 11.
