Perrysbury City Prosecutor appears to resign, following denial of potential replacement

City Prosecutor Martin Aubury watches on as city council votes down his recommendation for his replacement (WNWO).

There was an unusual start to the Perrysburg City Council meeting Tuesday night, as City Prosecutor Martin Aubry appeared to have quit his job.

Following an hour long executive session, council voted down the potential new city prosecutor, Chynna Fifer, four votes to three.

Mayor Thomas Mackin voiced his displeasure with the decision.

"I was disappointed with the choice, and I don't think it's in the best interest of the community to have done that, when especially someone who's served the community as well as Marty has for thirty years, recommends a person to take over. Then, the law director recommends that person, and myself, an attorney who practices in that court, familiar with the parties involved, thought she was the best candidate."

If Aubry's resignation becomes official, the city will hire an interim prosecutor on Wednesday.
