SNYDER, Okla. (AP) _ Snyder Police Chief Tod Ozmun, Mayor Dale Moore and City Councilman Clifford Barnard are resigning in the midst of a controversy over Ozmun's wife appearing nude on a Web site.

Ozmun had said earlier he would not step down, but now says he's fed up with the controversy and that the situation has become a media circus.

Moore says he finds nothing wrong or illegal with what Ozmun's wife was doing and he doesn't want to work in what he calls ``a community like this.''

Barnard also says he's disgusted with the situation that's brought national media attention to the southwestern Oklahoma town of about 15-hundred.

Residents packed a City Council meeting last week to call for Ozmun to be fired because his wife _ Doris _ was on the adult Web site.

The Council at the time issued a statement saying it would take no action against the chief and that Doris Ozmun had done nothing wrong and her actions were protected by the Constitution.

Councilman Sammy Gettens resigned after that meeting.
