Grandfield Mayor Gardner resigns, council votes Kent Kinzer replacement

Grandfield_Grandfield City Council met in special session on Tuesday morning to decide on a replacement for Mayor David Gardner who resigned due to scheduling conflicts. 

The vote was 3-0 with the three remaining council persons, unanimously to elect Kent Kinzer who volunteered again to take on the mayor's duties.  He had last served as mayor about 1 ½ years ago.  He will also be working at Grandfield Tag Agency, his regular job, in addition to serving at City Hall.

Gardner served about a year and a half according to the new mayor, who will need to run for office again in April.

Kinzer says that there will be two council seats up for election at that time.  (in all, 5 sit on the council and all are elected, the mayor and 4 council persons, 2 council persons up for election every 2 years)

Now that he has vacated the city council seat, he will conduct some interviews to see who might fill the council vacancy until the spring election.  

The next council meeting is set for 7 a.m. on Oct. 7.
