Published:
UNION GAP -- Former Union Gap Mayor Jim Lemon has resigned from the city council and accepted a $38,000 settlement.
In a resignation letter to the council Monday, Lemon said he was leaving to avoid confusion over the city's form of government. Voters ended the strong-mayor position in November, and Lemon stepped down to a temporary city council seat.
The Yakima Herald-Republic reported that he claimed he was still owed the mayoral stipend of $2,000 per month. The $38,000 settles that claim.
Lemon faces trial in May on a reckless driving charge. He's accused of spinning his tires in a parking lot and spraying a public works employee with gravel.
