Eric Bailey, Bourbon County’s Environmental Services Coordinator, offered his resignation to the Bourbon County Commission during their meeting Tuesday morning.
“We’re sad to see him go,” County Attorney Justin Meeks said.
Bailey served the county in his position for almost four years, remaining in contact with contractors and overseeing inspections of septic, holding tanks and lagoons. The county will need to find a replacement quickly to keep up with inspections and permits for area building projects. Bailey made a recommendation Tuesday.
“We’re going to miss you,” commissioner Lynne Oharah said.
The commissioners voted to accept his resignation, also agreeing to name June 2, as his final day as an employee.
“It’s been a wonderful experience,” Bailey said, taking time to thank the commissioners for the opportunity to work for the county. “I enjoyed every minute of it.”
Bailey said he is moving out of state in order to start his own business as a subcontractor.
