The city clerk for Mexico Beach abruptly resigned Tuesday evening during the regular monthly meeting of the City Council.

In resigning, Deborah McLeod said there was one person on the City Council that she "had a hard time dealing with," but did not provide any names.

“This is what’s best for the city, and for me,” said an emotional McLeod after she submitted her letter of resignation.

The City Clerk was recognized by Mayor Al Cathey for her contributions over the years.

“Thank you for your dedication. You’ll be missed by everyone,” he said.

Stressing the importance of having the City Clerk position staffed, Cathey made a successful motion to fill the vacant spot as soon as possible.

Demolition of the old City Hall building to prepare for the new construct was also a topic at Tuesday’s meeting.
