Peter Charles, the outspoken and sometime controversial elected member of the City of Victor Harbor, has handed in his resignation.

Councillor Charles says working at the council has taken its toll on him, with more than 10 Code of Conduct investigations into his behaviour, saying he feels punished and disillusioned by what he refers to as the controlling faction of council.

He believes council are overpaying for some infrastructure and are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars of ratepayers money unnecessarily.

Despite his issues with the elected members Mr Charles says he has absolute faith in new CEO Victoria McKirdy.
