Sterling Heights mayor takes leave of absence with cancer

STERLING HEIGHTS (WKZO) -- Sterling Heights Mayor Richard Notte is being treated for pancreatic cancer. He is taking a leave of absence from the post and Mayor Pro Tem Michael Taylor is now temporarily holding his office.

The 76-year-old Notte is in his eleventh term and has been mayor since 1993. Because Sterling Heights has a city manager form of government, his leave will not impact the daily operations of the city.
