ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Item number one at a Riverside City Council special meeting Thursday, Aug. 25, was the resignation of Mayor Allen Schneider, who was voted into office last November. Schneider stated that since making his intentions public, he had received feedback that made him reconsider resigning.

The city council could still accept his resignation Schneider said, but if not, he asked for a 30-day personal leave to reevaluate the situation. In a month, said Schneider, he would make a final decision on whether or not to step down.

Schneider told the Council that he was not ready to comment on the factors that led to him to contemplate leaving city government.

Ralph Schnoebelen made the motion not to accept the resignation, which was seconded by Tom Sexton. Sexton added that he hoped before the 30 days were up, they would straightened out the city’s chain of command.

After the vote, Schneider took his leave, saying he had to attend to other matters.

Schnoebelen will act as mayor pro tem for the next 30 days.
