Edgerton City Council member Heidi Wiseman announced her resignation from the governing body, effective July 25, during the June 26 Edgerton City Council meeting.
Wiseman, an Edgerton resident since 2000, has served on the city council for five years. She began her second term in April, 2013.
She is resigning as she and her family are moving to Kansas City, Kan., in the near future. She is employed in North Kansas City, and her husband Eric is employed in Shawnee. The move will allow both to be closer to their jobs. Their home will also be close to where Heidi grew up.
Wiseman notified Edgerton City Administrator Beth Linn and Mayor Donald Roberts in late-May of her intentions to resign from the city council.
She has been active in the Edgerton community, in addition to her city council duties. She has been involved in Edgerton Frontier Days, the Edgerton Food Pantry, the Edgerton Community Museum, and her church.
“Lots of things have come to fruition while I’ve been on the council, such as the hiring of a Parks and rec coordinator and a code enforcement officer. I also love that more Edgerton citizens are getting involved in the community,” she said.
Wiseman’s last council meeting will be July 24.
According to state statute, when a vacancy on the city council becomes available, the mayor is allowed to recommend a candidate to fill the vacancy. Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts is asking anyone interested in filling the vacated city council position to submit a letter of interest and resume to city hall no later than Friday, July 18. Prospective
