Controversial Macungie Mayor Rick Hoffman has officially resigned from his seat and has left the borough, weeks after announcing that he was moving out of town.

Hoffman, 59, who was scheduled to close this week on the sale of his house at 61 S. Sycamore St., submitted his resignation Friday.  Police Chief Edward Harry Jr. said Hoffman, who was at odds with the police force for much of his three-plus year sin office, has left the borough.

Borough Council is expected to accept the resignation at its Monday night meeting.
