Mayor Robert M. "Bobby" Dyer is scheduled to undergo a cardiac related surgery on Dec. 3 and expects to return to full duty the first meeting of January 2022.

"My physicians anticipate a full and speedy recovery, and I want you to be confident that I will be able to fully carry out all my duties as Mayor when I return," he said.

A licensed physical therapist, Mayor Dyer urges all citizens to pay close attention to their well-being, saying, "We came through a global pandemic and now, we must all make our best choices regarding diet, exercise and health. I appreciate the prayers and concerns of Virginia Beach citizens and our neighbors throughout the region."

Vice Mayor Rosemary Wilson will assume the duties of mayor during Mayor Dyer's recovery.
