Council member Miles Wenzel has submitted his letter of resignation from the
Cosmopolis City Council, effective September 23, 2023.

While Wenzel told staff that the decision was not easy, personal reasons and
changes brought the need to step down from his position.

Mayor Kyle Pauley stated, “Miles played a vital role on the City Council in his
two years serving residents. His work on numerous committees and insight into
difficult issues was invaluable.”, adding, “With this resignation it will mean an
entirely new slate of public officials within Cosmopolis as the remaining four
council seats are up for election with candidates who have not held local office.”
