Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner is resigning from his position as the mayor of the City of Huntingburg.

Mayor Spinner made the announcement of his resignation on Friday after learning he had been appointed to be the new Executive Director of the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), effective in December.

According to Spinner, his resignation as mayor will be effective Nov. 25 at midnight, at which point he will hand over the role of mayor to his successor, who by then, will have been selected by the Huntingburg Republican Precinct Committee.

In his statement on Friday, Mayor Spinner said he was humbled by the honor to serve the City of Huntingburg for the past nine years, and thanked the community as he moves forward into the next chapter of his life.

Despite the transition into his new position, Spinner said he and his wife would continue to live in Huntingburg.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
