Jerry Birdwell will resign as a Port District 7 commissioner effective April 1, he advised Chairman Orville Scharbach on Thursday.
Birdwell stated Friday that he had a number of things going on that will require that he leave the board. He was named to the commission, which oversees the operation of the local airport and the golf course, last July after the resignation of Larry Maier.
The board has been functioning with only two members since Stan Conklin, the third member, has been down south for the winter.
Scharbach said the port plans to advertise for persons interested in filling Birdwell’s position to submit letters of interest.
