Macungie Mayor resigns

MACUNGIE, Pa. - The mayor of Macungie, Lehigh Co., is moving out.

Mayor Rick Hoffman turned his resignation in to the borough Thursday. The borough council is expected to vote on accepting it at its Monday meeting.

Hoffman's term would have expired in December.

He and his wife have bought a farm out-of-state, officials said, and their Macungie home sold more quickly than expected. 

After accepting Hoffman's resignation, council will have 30 days to appoint a new mayor. Applications will be accepted and public interviews will be held.

Once council makes its choice, the interim mayor will serve out Hoffman's turn. 

Macungie residents will be electing a new mayor in November.
