Parsons, who was originally elected to the south ward seat in April of 2011, resigned from the council on March 19. In a letter, he cited a decision by former Mayor Bill Hill and former City Administrator Eugene Dilbeck to hire an additional position as the reason for his resignation. Dilbeck resigned on March 26, and Hill resigned on April 2.
