The Baxley City Council accepted the resignation of Councilman Kenneth Waithe, District 1 Councilman, at the Sept. 10 regular council meeting. Councilman Waithe read a letter officially resigning as council member for the district. Waithe stated with regret that he was resigning due to the relocation to Bethesda, Maryland, where he will begin a new job at Walter Reed Medical Center. Waithe expressed his appreciation to all the council members and told them how much he enjoyed working with each of them. “Baxley will always be my home,” said Waithe. Mayor Steve Rigdon and the council wished him well and thanked him for his service to the City of Baxley.
