Ed Kershaw, chairman of the Greeneville Civil Service Board, officially turned in his letter of resignation from that position during Tuesday's meeting at Greeneville Town Hall.
The letter, addressed to Mayor W.T. Daniels and City Administrator Todd Smith, announced that Kershaw will reach the end of his second, three-year term in October.
The September monthly meeting of the board will therefore be his last, as he has declined the third term the town offered in order to run for attorney general for the Third Judicial District.
Daniels and Smith will appoint a new board member, who will likely be sworn in during the October board meeting.
Board member Tim Teague will take over as chairman, Kershaw said.
"Thank you for allowing me to serve on the Civil Service Board," Kershaw wrote. "I will always be available to answer any questions or help out in any way in the future."
On Tuesday, the board scheduled the following testing dates at the Greeneville Crime Lab:
* Patrol Captain: 6:30 p.m., Sept. 11;
* Detective Sergeant and Patrol Lieutenant: 9 a.m., Sept. 13; and
* Detective Captain: 1 p.m., Sept. 13.
Interviews for those passing the tests will be from 6 to 9 p.m., Oct. 9-10.
The board's September meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., Sept. 11.
