Newly elected Innsbrook Trustee resigns


Mike Lyles has resigned from the Innsbrook Board of Trustees. Lyles was elected on April 2 when he defeated challenger Virgal Woolfolk with 101 votes to 67. 

According to the Village of Innsbrook ordinances, Lyles’ replacement will be appointed by the remaining board members. 

While there are no specific guidelines for how that appointee must be named in the village ordinances, Chairman Dan Reuter said there is a process that has been used for previous vacancies. 

He said the vacancy will be announced on the village website although he was unsure when it would be available with the sudden departure of their village clerk Carla Ayala. He continued, saying the board would solicit applications from interested community members and review them. 

Those applications can be submitted online when available, or in person to the village hall or a board member. From there the board will interview candidates and come to a decision. 

Once an appointee is chosen, Reuter said they will be sworn in at the following board meeting. He expected that process to take at least two months. 

“We want to give anyone who wants to step forward an opportunity,” Reuter said. 

Lyles’ resignation comes before a conscientious vote on the fate of the lagoon septic system at the Wags and Whiskers Animal Shelter. The board will still hold that vote on May 14 with the remaining four members. 

Lyles declined to comment.
