A special reception for the Rushford Village mayor will be held later this month.
Current Mayor Dale Schwanke will be stepping down after serving in the position since 2010. He was re-elected in 2012. Prior to becoming the village's mayor, Schwanke also served on the city council since 2001.
He will be relocating to northwestern Wisconsin.
The Tri-County Record reports Gordon Johnson will serve as Mayor Pro-Tem until the fall elections.
An open house will be held for Schwanke at the Peterson American Legion Club on May 28th, from 5-to-8 p.m.
