Mexico Beach city administrator resigns

At a workshop on Tuesday, Mexico Beach city administrator Chris Hubbard announced that he’d be resigning his position effective next Friday, April 4.

“Mexico Beach was a great place to work,” said Hubbard. “We accomplished a lot of positive things in my seven and a half years.

“We did what’s best for the city and citizens and I’m still planning to stay involved in the community.”

Councilmembers Jack Mullen and Gary Woodham wished Hubbard the best of luck in his future endeavors and Mayor Al Cathey thanked him for his years of service to the city.

“I appreciate Mr. Hubbard's decision to step down and to allow our city to move forward,” said Councilwoman Tanya Castro. “If you consider the Parker House debacle and our stormwater issues among others, I believe the people of Mexico Beach clearly recognize the fundamental failure of leadership.

“This is about personal choices leading to professional missteps and whether a city administrator has the skills and experience necessary to do the job the taxpayers are paying him to do.”

A special meeting will be scheduled to tie up any loose ends and discuss how the city will move forward to find Hubbard’s replacement.
