Hannibal’s Fourth Ward Alderman is submitting his resignation.

Barry Louderman told the Courier-Post that October 21st would be his last meeting as a member of the Hannibal City Council.

Louderman is moving to southwest Missouri, joining his wife who recently took a job in Marshfield, Missouri east of Springfield.

Louderman was appointed to the council in 2008 upon the death of longtime alderman Jim Dexheimer. Louderman was elected to a full term in 2010 and was reelected last year.
