Mayor Cecil Maddox said the problem is that Shepperson didn't ask for permission. He said now he doesn't trust Shepperson and asked him to quit. Shepperson said he took the initiative to step down.
Maddox says residents needn't worry about fire protection. He says the city still has firefighters and has mutual aid agreements with a nearby city and with Lincoln County.
