By B.A. Morelli, Reporter
SOLON, Iowa - The resignation of the city administrator in Solon has set off a shake up at City Hall.
City Administrator Cassandra Lippincott, who has held the position since 2005, is accepting a staff position with the City of Wildwood, Fla.
City Council accepted her resignation, during a special meeting on Thursday evening. Two council members urged current Mayor Cami Jo Rasmussen to apply to fill the role on an interim basis.
The City Council approved her for the role during the meeting on Thursday, at which point Rasmussen submitted her resignation as mayor, Lippincott said.
Council member Steve Stange, who holds the position of mayor pro tem, automatically assumes the mayor role, Lippincott said.
Barring a petition for a special election, City Council can appoint a mayor, potentially a sitting council member or a resident, Lippincott said.
