(COLDWATER) – The search is on for a new representative for Coldwater's 2nd Ward.
Coldwater city officials say Councilman Toby Kirk submitted his letter of resignation from the City Council Friday morning because he is moving out of the 2nd Ward.
City officials says that when a councilman has resigned in the past, the City Council has allowed the other councilman from that ward to submit the name of a potential replacement. The Council would then approve that appointment until the next election.
The other Councilman from Coldwater's 2nd Ward is Chris Pierce.
The City Council will meet on Monday afternoon to decide what they will do.
