According to a statement from city spokesman Jack O’Toole, Tecklenburg experienced a “bout of sustained dizziness” while working in his office. As a precaution, the mayor was transported to a local hospital for an assessment, according to the city’s statement.

Mayor Tecklenburg was later discharged from the hospital at 3:30 p.m. with a diagnosis of mild vertigo. He is currently resting at home with his family, according to O’Toole.
