Jim Sabel Has To Resign From FDL City Council

Even a Fond du Lac City Council meeting can have a heartbreaking moment as was the case last evening when the resignation of Council President Jim Sabel was tendered given ongoing health concerns. City Manager Joe Moore read a letter from Jim’s wife Joann last night saying it’s with sadness that Jim has to leave the position. He says it’s not a decision Jim or his family took lightly. Moore says he’s sorry to see it happen given Jim’s love of serving on the Council and for the City itself. Moore says how the position will be filled won’t be addressed until a new Council is seated on April 24th. Jim Sabel served on the Council for 9 years and he and his family have called Fond du Lac home for 54 years.
