MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - The former director of the Corn Palace tourist attraction in Mitchell is apparently seeking to get his job back.

Mayor Jerry Toomey told The Daily Republic newspaper (https://bit.ly/1QZwMKJ ) that attorneys for Dan Sabers have sent him a letter attempting to revoke Sabers’ verbal resignation earlier this month. Toomey had no comment on how the city will proceed.

No one has said why Sabers quit. He took the job in January, replacing former director Mark Schilling, who resigned after a state audit concluded he mishandled money.

The City Council on Monday night went into a closed executive session to discuss matters surrounding Sabers. People who wanted to comment were allowed to enter one by one and speak.

The Corn Palace draws about 200,000 tourists each year.
