East Ridge city manager resigns

August 9th, 2010 by Michael Stone in Local Regional News

East Ridge City Manager William Whitson this afternoon resigned effective Friday, and the city council has approved his resignation.

Whitson's resignation comes after public pressure related to a $657,000 deficit in last year's budget.

Council members had asked Whitson, whom they hired 18 months ago, to resign.

The City Council is meeting to discuss the shortfall.
