LOVINGTON, NEW MEXICO - The Lovington City Manager is calling it quits.

Pat Wise says his last day on the job will be June 17th.

He told the Hobbs News-Sun, the City Commission's atmosphere has been one of hostility and a complete lack of civility, most of it aimed at me.

He says his resignation was triggered by a proposed contract that would have allowed the commission to fire him at will.

Wise intends to look into other job opportunities in Lea County.
