The mayor of Prospect has announced his plans to resign next month.
Prospect Mayor Todd Eberle announced Tuesday he plans to resign from his post effective March 9.
Eberle said his health has declined after a car crash more than a year ago. He also cited increasing family obligations out of town.
He entered elected office in 2004 winning a seat on the Prospect city council, was elected Mayor in 2006 and re-elected in 2010.
He has enjoyed more than eight years on the Prospect city council.
“It has indeed been a distinct honor and privilege to serve the city of Prospect,” he said.
“After thought and consultation with friends, family and physicians, I have concluded that I am no longer able to dedicate the time and energies which I feel are required to fulfill the obligations of an active, full-time mayor for the city.”
Eberle has been honored throughout his terms as city council member and mayor.
He received the Elected Official of the Year Award from the Kentucky League of Cities, the Peyton Hoge Public Service Award from the Jefferson County League of Cities, and the Public Official of the Year Award from the National Arbor Day Foundation.
His replacement will be selected by the members of the Prospect City Council at an upcoming meeting.
Eberle said he intends to remain active in community-building efforts, including continued service on the Louisville Metro Tree Commission.
