SANBORN, Iowa (KTIV)- At the beginning of this year, Sanborn, Iowa’s city clerk, and mayor resigned their positions.
Monday night, the city council appointed a new mayor.
Council members and Sanborn citizens filled City Hall to see who would get the mayor’s job.
Council member Randy Lyman couldn’t attend tonight’s meeting in person, so he called in.
When the agenda item came up, Lyman asked everyone in the room, if they wanted to serve as mayor.
No one spoke up, so Lyman said he would serve as Sanborn’s mayor.
Lyman’s council seat is up for appointment in the November election.
Also on tonight’s agenda: a discussion about the town’s ambulance system.
The town of Archer, Iowa, decided to disband its ambulance service.
“So they’re looking for other communities/towns, so Sheldon, Primghar, and Sanborn, to fill in the absence of not having an ambulance service there,” said Jerry Back, Sanborn Council Member. “We’re kinda all trying to work together as a community to fill that void.”
Sanborn city leaders say they will put in a bid on the Archer ambulance.
