VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) - Valley City Mayor Bob Werkhoven has resigned.

The 85-year-old Werkhoven tells KOVC radio that recent health issues prompted him to step down from the office he’s held since 2010.

Four city employees earlier this year filed a grievance against Werkhoven for allegedly creating a hostile work environment. He denied the allegations by City Administrator David Schelkoph, Police Chief Fred Thompson, Police Lt. David Swenson and City Attorney Russ Myhre.

Werkhoven says the dispute had nothing to do with his decision to resign Thursday.
