Caneyville Mayor James Embry read City Clerk Brenda Brown’s official letter of resignation, during the special-called Monday, October 21 Caneyville City Commission meeting.

Brown resigned from her position as City Clerk effective Monday, September 30.

In a later interview, Brown, who served as Caneyville City Clerk for 27 years, said she will continue to work part-time as City Treasurer.

Brown said it wasn’t easy for her to resign from the position she held for so long, but she did so to have more time to spend with and care for her mother.

“My father recently passed away,” Brown said. “So we moved my mom in with us.”

Brown said a new City Clerk has not yet been selected, but several resumes have been submitted.

Brown said she enjoyed her time as City Clerk and the opportunities it provided her to participate in her community and interact with the people of Caneyville.
