Sauk Village mayor resigns; acting mayor appointed

November 9, 2012 3:06:45 AM PST
The mayor of suburban Sauk Village has resigned, and an acting mayor has already been appointed.

An attorney for outgoing Mayor Lewis Towers says he has grown tired of political fighting in the village.

Sauk Village has had financial problems.

Officials tried to combine the jobs of police chief and fire chief, but village trustees abandoned that idea.

Trustees voted fellow Trustee David Hanks to be acting mayor Thursday evening.
