North Logan • The North Logan mayor is taking a leave of absence to undergo cancer treatment.

Bailey was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer 15 years ago and is currently experiencing a relapse.

City council chose Councilman Damon Cann to serve as mayor pro-tem during Bailey’s absence on Wednesday.

Bailey supported the decision.
