ELYRIA — Councilman Larry Tanner has resigned due to health reasons.
Council President Mike Lotko confirmed the longtime councilman had resigned Thursday.
His resignation hasn’t been filed with the Lorain County Board of Elections yet, according to director Paul Adams.
Tanner, D-1st Ward, did not file to run for reelection. He has served on Council since the early 1980s.
Once his resignation is filed with the Council Clerk, it will be sent to the Board of Elections. A replacement to fill his unexpired term will be appointed by the Elyria City Democratic Party.
