BRIGHTON – Members of Brighton City Council accepted the resignation of city manager Nate Heinzer on May 31 during a special meeting Monday at Brighton City Hall.

Council members voted 6-1 to move to a closed session immediately after the meeting began talking to their attorney. Heinzer was not invited to the closed session.

According to Pro Tem Mayor Jim Bon, who read the first sentence of Heinzer’s resignation statement, the reason for the manager’s departure is due to differences in approaches.

“It has become increasingly clear that my professional priorities and approach to public service no longer coincide with the priorities of the city council,” Bon said.

The council, returning from a closed session, voted 5-2 in favor of resigning, with council members John Emmaus and Susan Gardner disagreeing.
