RITZVILLE – Mayor Gary Cook submitted his letter of resignation to the city Jan. 27.

Cook’s resignation will be effective March 31, 2021.

He submitted a letter of resignation to resign March 31, 2020, before rescinding that in light of the city’s March 13, 2020, Covid-19 emergency declaration to close city hall.

After Cook’s resignation takes place, city council members have 90 days to appoint a new mayor.

“If they can’t decide on someone, or come to a standstill, the county commissioners will appoint someone,” Cook said Friday, Jan. 29.
