PADUCAH, KY — Paducah Mayor Brandi Harless has asked City Manager Jeff Pederson to resign.

According to a news release, Harless has asked Pederson to submit his letter of resignation. The request was made after a closed session of Tuesday’s night Paducah Board of Commissioners meeting.

Harless said she is asking for his resignation based of her belief that a majority of the City Commission feels the same.

Pederson told Harless he will resign. He has agreed to continue as City Manager through January 12, 2018 to help the city during the transition process.

Work on finding a new City Manager will begin next week.
