Members of Mill Creek City Council voted unanimously to accept a letter of resignation submitted by councilman Gary Coffman at a special meeting Thursday evening.

No specific reason causing Coffman to submit his resignation was mentioned in his notice.

"We are sorry to see him (Coffman) go," said Mill Creek Mayor Bill Brock. "He was a good councilman."

Two employment applications received by the city were also approved for temporary, non-benefited positions.

The pair will be hired as carpenters to complete work on the Robert E. Maxwell Community Center.

Brock told members both employees were referred to the city by job service.

Council members also voted unanimously to hire a new chief operator at the water plant.

In other news, Councilwoman Diane Currence announced at the last meeting that she would be tendering her resignation because her residency was in question.

"I did not resign because Mayor Brock found out that I can finish my elected term," Currence said.

"However, I can not run again for a council seat unless I move back into the city limits."

The next regular meeting for Mill Creek City Council is set for 6 p.m. Sept. 13.
