The Commission hired Shelton in February 2015.

"Well it's something I'm very much looking forward to, but at the same time it's kind of scary," Shelton said.

Shelton worked as the joint communication's director for four months. The Commission said his resignation is effective immediately. 

Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey agreed to take over the Shelton's position as interim director.

The Commission said it does not expect Shelton's resignation to cause any delays in services.
