UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, Iowa (AP) - The mayor of University Heights has resigned.

Wally Heitman said in a posting Sunday on the city website that he had to step down to deal with a personal issue.

Heitman was a successful write-in candidate in the November 2015 election. On Thursday the City Council is expected to discuss appointing a replacement or holding a special election.

The community of about 1,100 residents sits just south of the University of Iowa and is surrounded by Iowa City.
