Mayor of Epworth resigns, citing health concerns

Posted: Updated:

The mayor of Epworth in northeast Iowa has cited personal health concerns for his resignation.

City clerk Janet Berger says Tom Gassman submitted his resignation on Tuesday.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald says Gassman has been mayor since 2012 and a council member before that.

Jacob Reuter will serve as acting mayor until the City Council fills the post of mayor. That's expected to occur at the council's Sept. 9 meeting.
