Willmar, Minn., School Board member resigns


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School Board will likely do its business for the rest of the year with just six members.

The board Monday accepted the resignation of board member Eric Roberts Monday afternoon. Roberts is leaving the board be-cause he sold his house and has moved outside school district boundaries, according to his letter of resignation. He had been on the board since 2004, and his term would have expired at the end of this year.
