JEROME -- The Jerome City Administrator, Polly Hulsey resigned Tuesday. This comes two weeks after the Jerome Fire Chief, Jack Krill also resigned.

Both were involved in billing the insurance company for the owner of an apartment building that caught fire last April.

The bill was nearly $100,000.

In a public announcement, Hulsey said she felt her credibility and integrity was in question.

Here is the full statement from Hulsey:

I have been dedicated to serving the community of Jerome in a proactive and positive manner during my tenure. So, it is with tremendous sadness that I tender my resignation as City Administrator of the City of Jerome effective September 17, 2013.

This has been a very difficult and personal decision for me. Due to a recent inaccurate article that questioned my credibility and integrity, it is very important to me that I am able to protect my name. The City of Jerome has recently experienced several challenges; however I can assure you the staff is dedicated to serving the citizens of Jerome.

The City of Jerome has some very talented and dedicated staff members, as well as elected officials serving the community. I have not been asked to resign and have had a good relationship with the City staff, which makes my decision even more difficult. My hope is the community will continue to support these incredibly hard working individuals, as they continue to serve their community.

I consider everyday a gift from God and have worked very hard to make a positive difference for the City of Jerome. I value all of the support I have received and appreciate everyone s affirmation of who I am and what I represent. I wish nothing but the best for the future of Jerome.

Polly Hulsey
