Alan Marchione resigned from the Maricopa City Council Thursday afternoon, effective immediately.

“It’s a tough time for everybody,” Mayor Christian Price said Thursday evening. “I think it’s going to be a great time for Maricopa to heal and move forward.”

Phone calls to Marchione were not returned.

City Manager Brenda Fischer, who brought the complaint to the city attorney, could not be reached for comment.

Marchione has faced several public calls for his resignation after a complaint was filed against him alleging misconduct at work, including sexual harassment and making city staff feel as though their jobs were in jeopardy.

Phoenix attorney Bill Sims, hired by the city to investigate the allegations, said Marchione was “abrasive” but did not sexually harass or threaten employees.
