Amherstburg's Mayor Stepping Back Due to Health Issues

Amherstburg's mayor is looking to clear the air when it comes to his absence from several council meetings in recent months.

Aldo DiCarlo took to Facebook Wednesday night to inform the public he's having health issues and is currently under a doctor's care.

In his post DiCarlo states, "I remain devoted to the Town of Amherstburg and hope to be back serving the people in a full capacity very soon."

DiCarlo goes on to say he'll continue to work behind the scenes where possible and thanks all who have expressed concern.

Since being elected to his second term as the town's mayor last October, DiCarlo has missed several council meetings.

DiCarlo is asking for privacy while he works to improve his health.
