ETNA GREEN — Etna Green Town Council President Todd Slabaugh has announced his resignation.
In an e-mail sent to local media organizations and Kosciusko County Republican Central Committee Chairman Mike Ragan, Slabaugh said the following:
“After months of thoughtful consideration, I am hereby submitting my resignation as the town council president of Etna Green effective immediately. I feel I have taken my service to the community as far as possible in the past 16+ years and that maybe it’s time for someone else to move it forward into the next generation. I would like to thank the citizens of Etna Green, former clerk-treasurer [Laura Baker], and former and present council members for all their support they have given over the years. It’s truly been a team effort.”
Slabaugh also listed accomplishments the town has made during his tenure including the junior football league field, the Etna Green museum, the Heritage Park sign, and the move of town hall offices.
Ragan thanked Slabaugh for his many years of service.
The Etna Green Town Council did not hold a meeting this week due to Slabaugh and council member Kevin Smith being absent. This announcement from Slabaugh comes a few months after the resignation of former Clerk-Treasurer Laura Baker, who resigned from the position on Dec. 31, 2018.
