WINONA, Texas (AP) -

The new mayor of a small East Texas town struggling with financial issues has quit.

Winona Mayor DeDe Stroud was elected in May. Stroud did not list reasons for her resignation Monday, effective immediately.

The Winona City Council meets Thursday night to formally accept Stroud's resignation.

Officials in Winona, a town of about 600 people, have faced financial problems including money owed to a gas utility and late insurance payments for city workers. A town hall meeting in April drew residents who questioned why some bills were not promptly paid.

Winona is 90 miles southeast of Dallas.
