Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp announced today that Interim City Administrative Officer Melissa Spurr has requested her name be withdrawn from consideration for the permanent C-A-O position.
Ms. Spurr thanked City Council members for their consideration; but decided not to pursue the opportunity at this time.
Mayor Kemp remarked he was sorry Ms. Spurr withdrew her name from consideration and he added that he is confident that she would have been an outstanding C-A-O.
Ms. Spurr will remain as Interim C-A-O until the position is filled permanently.
A search process will be underway immediately which will include appointment of a search committee.
