McPherson cemetery sexton Randy Pauls resigned on Monday, March 18.
City commissioners approved his resignation during an executive session on that date.
City administrator Nick Gregory said the resignation was a mutual decision made between the city and the former sexton, and that Pauls was looking to pursue other interests.
Gregory said Kody Kramer, assistant sexton, was promoted to acting sexton while the city works on a plan to fill the necessary role.
Gregory said the city will work with the cemetery to help provide McPherson residents with necessary services.
