Kingsburg mayor resigns to grow business

Kingsburg Mayor Chet Reilly resigned on Wednesday to devote more time to expand his payroll business, Payality.

Reilly’s resignation was effective at the end of the city council meeting, said city manager Alex Henderson. Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Blayney will be the acting mayor, Henderson said. The city council may appoint someone to serve the rest of Reilly’s term.

Reilly served on the city council for seven years and was mayor for the last three years. His position is up for re-election next year.
