Gilbert Planning Commission member and Highland Justice of the Peace-elect Dan Dodge is resigning from the board after 17 years, in accordance with state laws that prohibit justices of the peace from holding positions on other boards.
The Town Council is scheduled to accept his letter of resignation at its Tuesday meeting. He officially steps down Jan. 1 and his current term ends June 1. The council will fill the vacancy next year as it interviews and selects applicants for numerous board openings.
