Mayor of small Kentucky town emails notice of resignation

In February, the Kenton County Police Department and Park Hills Police Department raided the Bromley city building and seized boxes of items.

BROMLEY, Ky. (AP) - The mayor of a small Kentucky town has signaled his intent to resign amid a police investigation.

Bromley City Attorney R. Kim Vocke told The Kentucky Enquirer that Mayor Donnie Jobe's Sept. 8 email told the city council he "had done a lot of soul-searching and decided that his heart is just not in it."

In February, the Kenton County Police Department and Park Hills Police Department raided the Bromley city building and seized boxes of items. Kenton County police have not commented on the nature of the investigation.

Vocke says he expects a formal resignation to be presented to the council in October.

The newspaper could not reach Jobe for comment. It's unclear if Jobe's position as Bromley Volunteer Fire Department chief is impacted.
