McPherson City Commissioners accepted the resignation of the man hired to replace Tom Stinemetze as the Community Development Director barely 72 hours after Terry Jones started the job.

The commission met in a special session Wednesday afternoon, with Mayor Tom Brown absent. After an executive session of around 20 minutes, commissioners Bob Moore and Larry Weins voted to accept Jones' resignation.

City officials declined comment about the suddenness of the resignation and what details led to the decision.

The position will be re-advertised as soon as possible.
