The common clerk, Jonathan Taylor, stated that the councilor missed sessions on January 11th and 28th as well as February 8th and 22nd.

The council resolution noted that Sean did not explain if the absence was due to illness. Also, the council did not authorize his absence from council meetings.

Sean Casey was voted in as councilor in 2016. His phone number goes to voicemail, and informs callers that he won’t be accessible until the 13th of February.

The seat will be unfilled until May, when municipal elections will be held since an election cannot be allowed if it is taking place in less than 12 months.
