PERRYSBURG - City Council honored retiring council member Maria Ermie Tuesday evening for her service to the city.
Council also gave a reading to a resolution honoring her.
Ermie announced at the April 16 meeting that she would be resigning from council at the end of this month due to health issues. Ermie has served since 2001 and has chaired the Personnel Committee for 11 years. She has also served on the Finance, Service-Safety, Planning and Zoning, and Health, Sanitation and Public Utilities committees.
She was not present at the meeting, and council President Joe Lawless said he wanted to wait to actually pass the resolution until she was able to attend.
Council has 30 days after Ermie steps down to appoint a replacement to serve out the remainder of her term.
Her seat is one of three council seats up for election in November - the other seats are currently held by Lawless and Mike Olmstead, who has announced his candidacy for mayor.
Mayor Nelson Evans said that applications for those seeking to fill the rest of Ermie's term will be due April 30. One application has already been submitted, and two others are currently out.

The total assessment is $174,688.67, or a third of the cost of the project,
