Reading seeks to replace mayor who died Sunday

READING, Mich. City officials are seeking to replace Mayor Jay Krauss, 77, who died Sunday of natural causes.

Mayor Krauss was elected to a four-year term in 2004. He previously had served on City Council since 1997.

Mayor Krauss, employed as a farmer, truck driver, and electrician, first worked for the city from 1967-71 as superintendent of public works.

Council is expected to appoint a replacement at its July meeting after officially declaring the vacancy at its June 13 meeting, City Manager Kim Blythe said.
