WEST FORK, AR-- A Northwest Arkansas mayor vacates her seat first thing Tuesday morning and by the end of that night's city council meeting, a new one was appointed.
In a letter to the aldermen Tuesday, Frances Hime asked for her final paycheck to come in the mail and donated her office furniture to the city - ultimately stepping down as West Fork Mayor.
As far as the reason behind the abrupt resignation, Hime's letter was pretty vague. Council members met Tuesday night and by the end of the hour and a half meeting a new mayor was sworn in.
Charlie Rosetti will act as mayor on an interim term.
