Warren Cabe is leaving his role as the Franklin Town Manager as of May 2, a year after he began. The move was announced at Monday night's Board of Aldermen meeting after the board went into a closed session to discuss personnel matters. Upon returning, the board made a motion to accept Cabe's letter of resignation.
“I am thankful for the Town of Franklin and my time working for this board. I have learned a lot during my time as manager. The reason that I am leaving is in no way an ill result of my time working as manager,” said Cabe. “An opportunity has presented itself and it's one that I need to pursue.”
Before becoming town manager Cabe served as Macon County Emergency Medical Services Director and then shifted to the Town of Franklin. Now it looks as though he will be returning to the county as the EMS director once again.
“My heart has always been in emergency management services and that is what I will be doing next," Cabe said.
“We reluctantly accepted his resignation, but we certainly wish Warren the best of luck in the future, “ said Mayor Bob Scott.
With almost a month before Cabe leaves for good, town officials will be on the lookout for a new town manager.
“We're not really in a hurry. As you know, he's not leaving right away and he's willing to help us in this transition. I believe that we have a top-notch, capable staff that can handle whatever may come up in the mean time,” said Scott.
