During last week’s council meeting, District 2 Councilman Jim Eyre read aloud a short memo announcing his resignation from the city council.

In the note, Eyre said “I have said to those closest to me that I will continue to serve my constituents as a District 2 city council member until I feel I could no longer effectively represent the residents of District 2. Based on recent discussions, I believe that time has come.”

He went on to say, “…therefore, effective immediately, I am resigning my position as the District 2 representative on the Brookhaven City Council.”

The city recently celebrated one year of incorporation and is in the midst of fleshing out its comprehensive plan.

According to Susan Canon, assistant city manager/community development director, the city will call for an election in August to advertise for the November election and set qualifying dates and times.

City spokeswoman Dana Johnson said the city will not have a temporary council member fill Eyre’s seat until the election.
