  • Woosley resigns from council, chicken ordinance tabled

    The La Grange City Council will be short a member for a few days, due to the resignation of councilwoman Melanie Woosley.

    Woosley resigned July 30, Mayor Bill Lammlein said, because she moved to a property outside the city limits. Woosley did not return a call seeking comment and was not present at the council’s Monday meeting.

    In a letter read by Lammlein, Woosley said her move led her to resign as a councilwoman and to withdraw from her re-election bid this November. Lammlein said the city would miss Woosley’s dedication.
