The Covington News - - Front page - By Am­ber Pittman

Por­terdale city coun­cil mem­ber Kay Piper re­signed Thurs­day night, cit­ing health is­sues that are ex­ac­er­bated by stress.

Ac­cord­ing to Mayor Bobby Hamby, Piper’s an­nounce­ment was a sur­prise, though he said he knew her health is­sues had been get­ting worse. He also ac­knowl­edged Piper’s ex­per­tise in fi­nance and the help she has tried to give the city re­cently on get­ting a han­dle on “what our real fi­nan­cial pic­ture is.”

“I think [Piper’s res­ig­na­tion] is a tremendous loss to the coun­cil,” said Hamby. “She brought a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge to the coun­cil and it is a huge loss.”
