The mayor of Yellowknife will not be seeking re-election, saying he wants to spend more time with his family.

In a statement posted on his personal twitter account, Mark Heyck said it has been an “honour and privilege” to serve Yellowknife – first as a councillor in 2003 and the last six years as mayor.

Heyck says he is proud of what has been accomplished in his time, and remains focused on the multiple projects planned by council.

Heyck’s past year in office has come with some controversy, including a dispute with councillor Niels Konge and Konge’s interactions with city staff, and an investigation into alleged inappropriate on-the-job behaviour by municipal enforcement manager Doug Gillard.
