McCracken County Emergency Management Director Resigns
McCracken County Emergency Management Director Paul Carter has resigned from his post three months after a road-side argument allegedly turned physical.
Deputy-Judge Executive Doug Harnice said Carter turned his letter of resignation over to the Fiscal Court Monday evening.
Harnice said he wasn’t prepared to comment on whether possible ethic violations were the motivation behind Carter’s resignation, but he does believe Carter felt he had reached a kind age for retirement.
In July, Carter was suspended for five days without pay for a reported scuffle with a tow truck driver at the scene of a wreck. Paducah police declined to press criminal charges.
Judge-Executive Van Newberry has appointed Harnice interim-emergency manager until a replacement is found.
