Two high ranking officials submit resignations in White Springs

Jasper — Two high ranking officials in White Springs have tendered their resignation. Town Manager Bob Farley and White Springs Police Chief Ken Brookins both submitted letters of resignation to the town and they will be presented at Tuesday's town council meeting for public record.

Farley said by phone earlier today that it's just coincidental that both he and Brookins happened to submit their resignation letters at about the same time.

Chief Brookins, Farley explained, is resigning from the police department so that he can pursue a private business venture with his brother. Brookins' last day at work will be Feb. 26 and his official resignation date will be March 3.

Farley, who is 65 years old, said, “I'm just getting old and I need to retire.”

Farley stressed that his resignation has more to do with physical reasons than the job itself. He said he informed the town that even after he retires in June he will be available by phone to help if needed.

“I want to make this as smooth as possible,” Farley said.
