Cathy Nobles abruptly resigned from the Maysville Town Board Tuesday after expressing her frustration with her fellow board members.
According to Maysville City Clerk Sandra Albright, Nobles submitted her resignation in a text message Tuesday afternoon.
“She basically said she couldn’t work with the current board members,” Albright told the News Star.
Albright said Nobles did hint that she might run for a seat on the board in the future.
Mayor Earl Morton announced Nobles’ resignation at the end of the board’s regular meeting.
In other business, town board members approved several changes to city ordinances, including an ordinance dealing with dogs in town.
The ordinance mandates all dogs must be either under voice control, on a leash or secured in a pen enclosure that’s at least 8 feet by 8 feet.
Town Board members also took the first steps to renegotiate with Wadley’s EMS Service by approving a letter notifying Wadley’s of the city’s intentions to either discontinue service or renegotiate the current contract.
Town Board members also discussed renumbering many of the home addresses in town.
City officials attempted this large task approximately 10 years ago.
“We’ve got to do something about it,” said Morton.
Town board members and city employees cited several instances where addresses are incorrect.
“This is a safety issue. Emergency personnel have to find the right home when there is a fire or emergency situation and, right now, they might not know where to go because the addresses are wrong,” said Town Board member David Uhles.
Town board members asked Maysville Fire Chief Joe Caldwell to head up the effort and come back with an estimate of what it would cost to make the necessary changes.
