(KNZA)--The Hiawatha City Commission voted unanimously Monday evening to accept the resignation of City Administrator Becky Berger.

Following an executive session, Mayor Becky Shamburg announced that Berger had submitted a letter of resignation, which was effective immediately.

No reason was publicly stated for the resignation.

Berger was not present at the meeting.

Shamburg said she could not comment on the resignation, saying it was a personnel matter.

Berger had served as city administrator since January 2023.

In the absence of a city administrator, the Commission voted to name City Clerk Dawn Boyles and Public Works Director Brad Scott as temporary purchasing agents for the city. They will have the authority to spend up to $5,000 without commission approval.
