Brigham City Mayor Dennis Fife

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A small-town mayor in northern Utah has acknowledged having an extramarital affair but plans to stay in office.

The Standard-Examiner reports that Brigham City mayor Dennis Fife confessed to having an affair with a woman he once counseled during his time as a bishop with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Fife said in a statement that the relationship began after he was released from his bishop duties. He asks for forgiveness and says he's seeking repentance.

He told the city council about his affair during a closed meeting last week and sent out the statement to address rumors swirling in the community.
