K2 Radio News has learned that the Mayor of the town of Mills, Marrolyce Wilson, has submitted her resignation.

The Mayor has been one of the people at the center of an embezzlement scandal involving the town Treasurer Lisa Whetstone, who has pleaded not guilty to taking $64,000 in city funds.

The Mayor submitted a one line email resigning effective September 1st.

No reason was given, though at the outset of the embezzlement investigation by the  Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, there were accusations that she had told city employees not to cooperate with investigators. That is an accusation she has denied.

Whether this is tied to that issue, or others, isn’t known.
