Bogata City Council meeting on Sept. 14.

BOGATA — Vincent Lum resigned from his position as Bogata mayor tonight at a well-attended City Council meeting. He was joined in resignation by councilman Don Roach.

Some community members had called upon Lum to give up his position after a controversy arose regarding the former mayor's use of a monthly expense account without receipts for expenditures.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
