Milkie’s resignation is effect as of the close of business on Wednesday; Morien will be leaving Oct. 5.
Milkie said it wasn’t any one thing that pushed her to step down. Instead, she said everything just came together to a point where she knew it was time to resign.
“It was really like the perfect storm,” she said. “But in a nutshell, the board’s inability to accept change and to recognize what this community could be and implement those changes have really just gotten to be too much.”
Milkie has served on the village board since 2003, first as a trustee and then as Village President since 2005.
