(BayAreaNewsTalk) – Brentwood Vice Mayor Steve Barr announced Monday that he is resigning from the City Council to move out of the area for retirement.

Barr, who was elected to the City Council in 2010, wrote in a letter to the city clerk Monday that his wife and he “have made the difficult decision to relocate to far northern California” and that he will resign
effective Sept. 8.

“I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and dedicated public employees who always did their best to put the students, residents and the community first,” Barr wrote.

“I take comfort in knowing that the leadership team … with the support by an incredible city staff will keep Brentwood moving forward with the best yet to come for our residents,” he wrote.

City officials said the City Council will begin discussion on how to fill Barr’s vacancy at its upcoming Sept. 12 meeting.

His replacement will fill the seat until the next regular election in November 2018.
