The Great Bend City Council Monday night accepted the resignation of Councilwoman Jessica Milsap. Milsap submitted her resignation letter from the 1st Ward council member seat with the term ending January 2021 due to a conflict of interest with her accepting the Great Bend Economic Development Inc. director’s position.

That committee will make a recommendation to the full council.
