He said he was proud of the accomplishments of council during his tenure of more than six years and acknowledged the village was in good hands with the current council, village manager, department heads and staff.
“I’m in a different stage of my life,” McIntosh said. “I hate to do it but I feel its the responsible thing to do. As my personal and professional life has evolved, I don’t have that time anymore.”
He and his wife are parents of a small child with another on the way. McIntosh joined the ownership group at Sandy’s Auto and Truck Service and is running two businesses that he owns.
While he has no regrets, McIntosh is proud of the village staff and the work they do.
“We have a very good village manager and department heads,” he said. “We built a stable staff and the village is a much better financial position than it was in when I arrived more than six years ago. I’ll miss the staff and working with council.”
McIntosh said, “I love Carlisle and have thoroughly enjoyed serving this community with this body. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and trust that the residents of Carlisle gave me.”
After McIntosh leaves office, the village will be soliciting applications to fill the vacant seat. The Village Charter specifies council has 60 days to choose a successor. If council cannot select a successor, the mayor has the power to appoint the new council member who will serve out the unexpired term.
