CORFU, N.Y. (WIVB) - Village of Corfu Mayor Ralph Peterson was given until the end of the day last Friday to resign from office.
He was supposed to attend an executive meeting Monday night, where News 4 expected to learn whether or not he would be stepping down. But town officials say Peterson has been hospitalized and believe it may be stress-related.
Trustee Kenneth Lauer said, "We've asked that the lawyer, once he becomes healthy, the village attorney, contact him and put forward, what his options are."
The board is demanding the mayor's resignation for doing several things not in "the best interests of the village." For now, trustees have decided to await further action to allow Peterson time to recover.
