Ken Lopez, Maywood’s interim village manager, has resigned, according to a confidential source. Mr. Lopez, 51, had been in the position for less than a month. According to an April 15, report published by Journal & Topics, Mr. Lopez was hired as the city administrator for Prospect Heights, Illinois on Monday, April 14. Maywood’s interim manager position had been held by assistant village manager David Myers since former manager William Barlow resigned in January of this year. Mr. Myers was hired as assistant village manager late last year.
As of press time, no village official could be reached for comment.
In the Journal & Topics article, Mr. Lopez said that he was attracted to Prospect Heights because of “its small town charm and the development and infrastructure projects already being planned.”

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that former village manager Bill Barlow resigned in January of last year, instead of January of this year. This article has since been emended.
