Council accepts Ruhland resignation

Thursday, December 21, 2006

The Le Mars City Council Tuesday formally accepted the resignation of Donna Ruhland, Le Mars recreation director, at the same time awarding her $22,612 in severance pay.

Mayor Virgil Van Beek said Ruhland, leaving her post Dec. 29 to become development director at the Mid-American Transportation and Aviation Museum in Sioux City, has "made many contributions" to the city not only as recreation director for the past 13 years, but also as a grant writer and one responsible for city funding projects.

Terming her "a great asset" to the city, Van Beek noted that one of several positions she has also held, that of manager of the outdoor pool "was eliminated by outsourcing" through the new agreement with the YMCA.
