Sam Wilson has returned to the Sussex County Council this week after a two month absence.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that he suffered a stroke in October last year and spoke stiffly while wearing a brace on his first appearance at a council meeting.
He will serve as the council’s vice president -- a position he had last year.
While he was gone the council put off a number of votes on land-use applications.
Council president Michael Vincent said that the panel would resume its usual review of the applications.
