The mayor and a City Council member in the northwest Iowa city of Milford have resigned because of disagreements with members elected last fall.
Council member Rick Kilts acknowledged he and Mayor Don Lamb quit Wednesday night.
Kilts says they disagreed with the direction of three council members elected in November 2013.
One issue has been the council's decision to place City Administrator Matt Skaret on administrative leave. Kilts says the new council members want to fire Skaret and can do so without giving a reason.
Council member John Walters, who was elected in 2013, says there have been disagreements with Kilts and Lamb. Walters wouldn't say whether the council wants to fire Skaret.
