PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city's acting director of maintenance will vacate that position on March 16, it was confirmed Wednesday, following his resignation on Monday.  
 
Gregory Yon, who has served as acting director since last April, said in a statement:
 
"Due to personal and professional reasons on March 5, 2012, I tendered my resignation as Acting Director of Maintenance for the City of Pittsfield to Mayor Daniel L. Bianchi. I am very grateful to Mayor James Ruberto and [former North Adams] Mayor John Barrett for giving me the opportunity to serve the city and the citizens of Pittsfield. The effective date of my resignation is March 16, 2012."
 
Mayor Daniel Bianchi declined to comment on the maintenance director's departure after less than a year in this position, other than to confirm Yon's resignation.
 
Yon became director of maintenance in April 2011 by the appointment of former Mayor James Ruberto.  His appointment became the subject of some controversy at the time, following Ruberto's decision to remove his appointment from consideration by the City Council and instead place him in the position in an "acting" capacity.  Yon's appointment was not expected to face opposition from the council.
