Corbin City Manager Abruptly Resigns

May 15, 2012

Just over five months on the job Mike Phillips has resigned as Corbin city manager. Phillips, stepped into the position in January after an exhaustive search following the resignation of Bill Ed Cannon, notifed Mayor Willard McBurney and the city commissioners at the city commission meeting Monday night. If at least one city commissioner has his way, the days are numbered for the city manager's position. "We need to change Corbin's form of government to a council-mayor system," said Commissioner Joe Butch White.
