Sugar Grove Township Supervisor Dan Nagel has resigned, he announced Wednesday.
He did so for "personal and family reasons," according to a letter he sent to newspapers. He gave no other specifics.
Nagel has served, as either a trustee or supervisor, for 38 years, according to the letter. He wrote that he was proud of the township board's accomplishments during that time, including moving to new offices, renovating the assessor's office and the Sugar Grove Community Building, establishing a senior center and finding permanent office space for mental health services.
Most recently, Nagel had presented a plan to the village board for a new park on Municipal Drive. The park would also include a storage site for highway department materials.
The township board will meet at 7 p.m. Monday to discuss the vacancy, Trustee Scott Jesseman said.
All township offices are up for election in April.
