Indian Trail Councilmember Shirley Howe has resigned from her position on the Town Council, effective Aug. 21, 2020, citing health reasons.
Howe was re-elected to the Town Council this past November, after filling a vacant Council seat in 2017. She also served on the Town Council from 2005-2009. During that time, she held the role of Mayor Pro Tem. Howe has been heavily involved with the Town since 2003 when she began regularly attending Council meetings. In addition to her time on the Town Council, she served on the Board of Adjustment. She was also instrumental in the creation of the Town’s stormwater program and the Stormwater Advisory Committee, which she chaired.
“Mrs. Howe has served the residents of Indian Trail for many years, both in a personal and professional capacity,” said Indian Trail Mayor Michael Alvarez. “For nearly two decades she has been involved and engaged with the Town, always putting residents’ needs as the top priority. Having spent many years on the Council with her, she has become like a mother-figure to me and someone I hold close to my heart. I wish her nothing but the best as she focuses on her health, and I will miss serving with her.”
The Indian Trail Town Council will meet at a later date to discuss filling the open seat. The Town will then provide an update with the next steps.
