CARBON HILL, Ala. (WBRC) - The mayor of Carbon Hill, Mark Chambers has submitted a letter of resignation to the city clerk, according to a member of the city council.
The one-sentence letter states: “I quit the job of mayor effective June 27 at 4:30 p.m.”
His resignation has not been accepted by the council yet. An emergency meeting has been called for Wednesday, July 1 at 6 p.m. where the city council will make a decision.
Carbon Hill resident Carolyn Jones said she voted for Chambers and was disappointed.
“I didn’t think his views were to the point of what we are dealing with now. I hope the next person is more considerate of everybody in this town and not bring shame upon our town constantly,” Jones said.
