Sandwich without a mayor

Sandwich without a mayor

Former Sandwich Mayor Rick Olson wasn’t at city council Monday night to read his resignation letter. City Clerk Denise Ii read it instead:

Olson was charged in a LaSalle County prostitution sting last week.

Ii worked with him for the past six years.

Alderman Rich Robinson was acting mayor for Monday’s meeting. He says the city council will meet again next week to select a new mayor from the city council to fill the remainder of Olson’s two-year term.

Robinson says the city is already moving on.

Robinson says Olson was a good mayor and that he wishes the best for him and his family.
