WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - Wahpeton Mayor Meryl Hansey has stepped away from his public duties as he battles cancer.

The Daily News reports that Hansey has been absent due to illness since June. Members of the City Council said he’s being treated for cancer.

City Financial Director Darcie Huwe says Council President Steve Dale is handling the mayoral duties until Hansey’s return, which is expected sometime in the fall.
