Bethel City Council member Naim Shabani has resigned. Bethel City Clerk Lori Strickler told the Council on Tuesday night that Shabani has submitted a formal resignation letter to the city.

 

In the letter, Shabani said that his resignation was due to time constraints with co-running Kusko Cab and their recent influx of employees.

 

"Two months ago, we [Kusko Cab] were able to acquire one of our biggest competitors [Quyana Cab]. This has resulted in me personally overseeing the operation of 45 full time employees on a daily basis," Shabani said in the letter. He added that, "Bethel has a tremendous amount of dedicated individuals that deserve my seat and that will represent the great people of Bethel and their best interests. I will continue to be involved and contribute to our community in any way I can."

 

Strickler says that the Council will consider his resignation at the next Council meeting on May 8.
