The Mayor of Chadbourn resigned Tuesday night during the town's council meeting citing health reasons, according to Town Manager Stevie Cox.
Fax Rector has served as mayor since December of 2012. He was selected to finish out the term of Kenneth Waddell.
Rector has been with the Chadbourn Town Council since 2003.
Cox said Mayor pro-tem Donald Ray Bass will serve as mayor temporarily until council can make a permanent appointment at an upcoming meeting.
Cox himself recently announced he's leaving Chadbourn to take a job as town administrator in Capitol Heights, Maryland - a suburb of Washington D.C.
