MIDDLETON, Idaho — Officials in Middleton have urged the mayor to resign following his arrest on a domestic battery charge earlier this month.

The Idaho Press reports the Middleton City Council unanimously voted Wednesday to adopt a resolution requesting Mayor Darin Taylor to resign.

Taylor said at the meeting — his first since the arrest — that he planned to continue working with the council through the remainder of his term, but he would not seek re-election in November.

Taylor said he would not sign the resolution. The council does not have the authority to remove the mayor without a recall vote.

Taylor has pleaded not guilty to the domestic battery charge.
