Dale Williams resigned from his position on the town board April 1, 2010 in order to place a bid on a town project, per statutory requirements. He won the bid, and Roberta Thelen was appointed to fill his seat on the board.

On March 11, 2009, as he was running for re-election, Williams also resigned his position on the board to bid on a town project, which he won.
