After missing multiple school board meetings due to a car accident, Elida School Board member Brad Settlage resigned from his position.
The Elida School Board started off its meeting in executive session after board president Dennis Fricke received a letter of resignation from Settlage, and it came as a surprise to the rest of the board.
Settlage missed meetings since late February after being rear ended and having to have multiple surgeries.
The board is now looking to replace his position immediately. The replacement will also have to run on the November ballot to finish out his term.
Resumes will be accepted for the next ten days. After applications are reviewed and interviews conducted, a new member will be appointed within 30 days.
