"My decision has been difficult because I very much enjoy the work on council and feel very honored to have been elected twice by a good number of our residents," he wrote in the email.

"I feel blessed to have been part of important decisions that we made over the years leading to huge betterments in our city."

Koehler thanked the public and his council colleagues for their support and cooperation.

He said he plans to spend more time with his family and his wife, who plans on retiring soon.

"Further, my bucket list does not seem to get shorter when it comes to travel, building a cottage and more time for various projects and activities."
