Columbus Mayor Nicole Lawson confirmed that William "Bud" Canfield and Jeane Canfield will be resigning to move to Wisconsin.
Lawson said Bud Canfield had an existing medical condition that was recently exacerbated, and they decided to move closer to family members.
Bud Canfield was in the middle of his four-year term as a trustee, and Jeane Canfield was just elected this month to a four-year term.
Bud was the last remaining trustee in office from before the gun smuggling case that rocked the border community last year and prompted the resignations of the mayor, police chief and trustee Blas "Woody" Gutierrez.
Lawson said the Canfields have not submitted their resignations yet, but she expects them to do so next month, effective April 30th.
She has notified Municipal League attorneys of the impending resignations.
Lawson said once the resignations are official, she will request letters of interest from Columbus residents who would like to be appointed to the village trustees. She will then select two candidates from those letters and submit her choices to the trustees for approval.
