After nine-and-a-half years serving the city of Shelbyville as a member of city council, Mike Miller has resigned.
"When you move out of the city, you have to give your resignation," he said.
For the past several months he has been building a new home on his family's farm just barely outside the city limits.
"We're not a half mile from the city limits," he said. "My grandfather bought this farm in the 50s, then my uncle had it until he died. And I told my aunt if she ever wanted to sell this last tract to call me, and she did about two years ago."
