The Ottawa Recreation Commission is one board member short.

Joe Goedert, one of the city’s representatives on the ORC board, has resigned — effective immediately — because he has taken a job outside the city, Leslie Quillen, executive assistant to the Ottawa city manager, said.

Ottawa city commissioners likely will discuss how they want to conduct the search for Goedert’s successor during their study session 4 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 101 S. Hickory St., Quillen said Thursday.

City commissioners voted 5-0 in April 2012 to appoint Goedert, a loan officer at Kansas State Bank, to the ORC board. Goedert’s term was to run through April 2016.
