Fortenberry resigns as Booneville police chief

BOONEVILLE – Police Chief Tim Fortenberry tendered his resignation to the city board this week, saying he would retire effective Aug. 28.
In his letter Fortenberry said he made the move because of the board’s decision to not reappoint him.
Fortenberry has served as Booneville police chief since 2003. He remained on the job after a vote by a majority of board members in 2007 to not reappoint him, because there was no vote to terminate him.
