A pair of city of Seymour employees had their letters of resignation accepted Thursday night by the Seymour Board of Aldermen.
Departing the city’s workforce are Aubrey Hutson, who is an officer for the Seymour Police Department, and Adam Pogue, who is employed with the city’s parks and street department.
Both are leaving the city to go to work for the nearby Rogersville Police Department.
Prior to working for the city of Seymour, Hutson and Pogue were police officers in Rogersville.
“We wish both of them the best and appreciate their service to the city of Seymour,” City Administrator Hillary Gintz said. “During their time with Seymour, both of them were excellent city employees.”
Hutson’s position soon will be filled, Police Chief Steven Pogue said Monday.
The Seymour Police Department currently is advertising the job opening and accepting applications.
“Ideally, we would like to have someone hired very early in 2022,” Steven Pogue said.
Hutson’s last day with the local force was Saturday.
Minus Hutson, members of the Seymour Police Department include Steven Pogue as chief, Chase Davis and Gabe Stroud as sergeants and Robert Lucas, Skylar McIntosh and Tyler Smith as patrolmen. Ray Rodriguez, resource officer for the Seymour R-II School District, also is employed by the city of Seymour.
Adam Pogue’s job position in the city’s parks and street department won’t be filled — at least not now.
Gintz said the aldermen opted to wait until the spring to determine if someone will be hired to his position.
His final day was Friday.
