Verona mayor resigns

Monday, June 11, 2012

Verona Mayor Lloyd Airrington tendered his resignation to the council on May 23, citing in his letter of resignation "conflicts that prevented him from doing his duty as mayor."

That left Verona council members in the position of appointing Alderman Willis Hutson to fill the mayor's seat and appointing former alderman, Sheila Massengill, to fill Willis' position on the board.

Alderman Matt Pruente also tendered his resignation from the board on May 4. He did not cite any reason for the action.

Pruente did not run for the position in the April election, but was appointed after garnering nine write-in votes.

That leaves one vacant seat on the Verona board of aldermen, which officials hope to have filled before the next regular meeting of the council.

In other business, aldermen approved hiring Jeffrey Cooper as a part-time police officer at a starting wage of $8.50 per hour.
