Springfield Councilman Justin Burnett has resigned after moving out of City Council Zone 2 and into the southern part of the city.
According to an email from the city, Mayor Bob Stephens responded to an email from Burnett, accepting his resignation, noting that he no longer meets the residency requirements to serve as Zone 2 Councilman.
This is the second time Burnett has resigned. In January, the councilman submitted his resignation, citing health concerns. He rescinded that resignation soon after.
