DOVER, Idaho (AP) - The mayor of Dover in northern Idaho has resigned after 18 years leading the city.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports (https://bit.ly/MAkvkN) that Paul “Randy” Curless resigned on Wednesday.

Curless says conflict within the city council and the resulting stagnation has made it impossible for him to meet his duties and responsibilities.

In a statement, Curless says the “welfare of this community transcends in importance the petty conniving, personal grievances, and animosities of self-seeking individuals.”

His resignation follows the departure of longtime Councilwoman Peggy Burge and the ouster of City Clerk Kym Holbert.

The city is still struggling over the appointment of a city attorney, water rates and other problems.

Curless says maybe the city can move ahead with his resignation.
