One of the items of business for the City of Logan’s regular council meeting to be held Tues., Oct. 8, will be to accept the resignation of Mike Allie from the city’s council.

According to Logan Mayor Serafino Nolletti, a letter deposited in his home mailbox Tuesday evening contained a letter of resignation from councilmember Mike Allie.

The letter reads:

“Letter of Resignation

To the Mayor and city council of the City of Logan

I, Mike Allie, hereby resign from my seat/position of city councilmember. It has been a pleasure serving with you all. May God bless you in your future endeavors.

Mike Allie”

The letter was signed by Mike Allie and gave no reason or explanation for the resignation.

“When I went home Tuesday night… I saw this envelope sticking out of my mailbox,” Nolletti said. “It was made out to the Mayor and Council. I didn’t know what it was… when I opened it, it was his letter of resignation.”

Nolletti said he hasn’t spoken with Allie to confirm that the letter was actually written and submitted to the council by Allie.

“It appears to be his handwriting,” Nolletti said.

Allie, who has been absent from the monthly council meetings for several months, was recently mentioned in connection to an arson fraud case in Logan.

Allie, along with his brother Jamil, were mentioned during the course of testimony at an arraignment for Gregory Glick, Guy Miller, Shawn Simon and Jamey Thompson, all who are charged in the arson fraud case. During the testimony at the September 6 hearing, it was revealed that the Allies cooperated with the Federal government and taped conversations and phone calls during the investigation into the case.

Nolletti said he doesn’t know who will be appointed to finish Allie’s term, which expires in May 2015.

“We don’t have anyone yet to fill his seat,” Nolletti said. He also added that there was no time limit on making the selection.
