Macungie Council member Linn Walker, who Macungie Police said Saturday would be charged with open lewdness , did not attend Monday's council meeting at which some expected he would resign.
Walker said Saturday that the incident was a "wake up call" not to urinate outside ad that "It's time to step down and get out of the spotlight."
He also said he would resign from the borough's planning board.
Council President Jean Nagle said she had spoken with Walker, but that she has seen no letter of resignation.
Though Walker is a public figure, Nagle said the incident was Walker's personal matter, and that it does not involve or affect council.
She added that by law council cannot require Walker to resign since the episode was a misdemeanor.
By law, if Walker tenders his resignation, council will have 30 days to fill his seat.
