Longtime Springfield City Council member Max Neidlinger is stepping down from his post, effective immediately.
Neidlinger submitted his resignation to city council and council members approved it by a 4-1 vote Tuesday night. Council member Charles Hinely cast the lone “no” vote.
“I don’t want to see him resign,” Hinely said. “So I’m voting ‘no.’”
