Deiss to resign from village board at next meeting

Ellsworth Village Board member Dave Deiss will announce his resignation from the board at Monday's village board meeting despite the fact he's on the ballot for the spring election Tuesday.

Deiss will be ineligible to serve on the board as he will be moving to a new home outside the village limits in Ellsworth Township on 745th St.

"The ballots were printed a while ago and my family and I were looking for a new home," Deiss said. "The sale happened so fast and the fact the house we chose was outside the village that unfortunately I will not be able to serve on the board."

Deiss' name will still be on the Tuesday ballot but a write-in candidate could be elected to the board with enough votes. The only announced write-in for the board is Mike Steele.
