SODAVILLE, Ore. (UPI) -- After several months of not having adequate access to their mayor, the Sodaville, Ore., City Council voted unanimously to oust him.

Mayor Brady Harrington was voted out Thursday and replaced with council President Nick Heineck, the Albany (Ore.) Democrat-Herald reported.

The Sodaville city bylaws say that if councilor is absent for more than 64 days, the post can be vacated.

"In all fairness to Brady, he was out fighting fires during this time. He's also been in school," Heineck said. But he was not available, and we could not gain access to him, because his phone [message box] was full.

Heineck finally reached Harrington by phone earlier this past week, but the absent mayor said he would not be able to make it to the next few council meetings, which happen once a month. Harrington already missed the meetings in June and July.

During their conversation, Heineck asked Harrington to resign, to which Harrington said he would think about it.

"We all felt bad about having to do it," Councilor Roger Perry said of Harrington's replacement. We'd rather Brady resigned.
