HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- A spokeswoman for the city of Hagerstown says the city's finance director has resigned following an alleged "misuse of city money."

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown ( reports Michelle Burker's resignation was effective Monday.

Hagerstown's mayor, David S. Gysberts (GYS'- berts), told the paper it was Burker's decision to resign. He said he couldn't talk about her resignation further because "it is a human resources matter." No charges have been filed.

City spokesman Erin Wolfe says the amount of money in question was less than $1,000 and that the city anticipates those funds will be repaid. Burker declined to comment to the paper when reached by phone Tuesday.
