WALTON, KY (FOX19) -

Walton Mayor Phillip Trzop submitted a letter of resignation to city council on Monday, effective immediately.

Councilman Michael Wood read the letter at a council meeting Monday evening, which stated Trzop must 'attend to personal issues'. He did not attend the meeting.

Trzop is the former General Manager of the Boone County Water District and was charged in November 2012 of abuse of public trust.

He was fired from the position after Investigators say he allegedly sold $34,000 worth of scrap metal belonging to the Boone County Water District.

He is due in court on June 12.

Trzop also served as the mayor of Walton from 1994 until 2010.  He was elected again in November of 2012.
