Belville commissioner resigns to pursue personal, professional interests
BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) — Belville Mayor Pro Tem Charles Bost is quitting the town’s Board of Commissioners.
Bost submitted his letter of resignation effective Wednesday. Mayor Mike Allen said Bost did not include the reason for his resignation. Fellow Commissioner Joe Breault says Bost quit because he did not have enough time to fulfill the requirements of the office.
Bost has not yet returned our call for comment. He was elected to a four-year term on the Board of Commissioners in 2011.
Town leaders say they will hold a special meeting Thursday to accept Bost’s resignation and discuss how they plan to move forward.
Bost is the second Belville town leader to resign in the last 18 months. Mayor Jack Batson quit in July 2012 as the Board of Commissioners prepared to censure him for reportedly holding discussions about merging with Leland without board approval. Allen became mayor after Batson’s resignation, while Bost was named mayor pro tem.
