Niota's street commissioner has quit, saying in a letter he's been threatened in response to commission actions and he's had "nothing but trouble" from some of his detractors for two years.
The Daily Post-Athenian in Athens reported that the 800-resident McMinn County town's mayor read the resignation letter from Donald Youngs at a Monday night meeting.
The letter said Youngs' vehicle was vandalized in response to commission actions.
Youngs was appointed to a vacancy in 2009. He did not return a telephone message seeking comment Tuesday.
The town is seeking resumes to choose a successor.
