Jonrowe announced her intentions to resign June 7 via Facebook.
In the Facebook video, Jonrowe cited a few of her reasons for resigning and said they are personal in nature.
Jonrowe was serving her fourth term on City Council after being most recently re-elected in November.
She served on multiple boards during her time on the council, including the boards for the Georgetown Transportation Enhancement Corp., the downtown Georgetown tax increment reinvestment zone board, the Transportation Advisory Board and the Animal Shelter Advisory Board.
“While I was surprised and saddened by Jonrowe’s resignation from City Council, I fully support her decision to prioritize her family and her health,” Mayor Josh Schroeder said in the release. “I thank her for her service to this community and wish her well in her future endeavors.”
The city charter and the Texas Constitution require a special election within 120 days of a vacancy, which coincides with the November election, according to the release.
