Mexico Beach city clerk resigns

No vote was taken on McGhee’s employment during the meeting and Councilwoman Tanya Castro encouraged her fellow councilmembers to be supportive of the new employee.

The resignation came several weeks later putting the city right back where it started, in need of a clerk.

In an attempt to avoid further conflicting information, the council held a special meeting on Monday to finalize the responsibilities of the position. They built a new list by adding on responsibilities to the version they’d written in 2005, though Cathey noted that it would not be possible to list all duties of the city clerk.

They also did their best to separate which responsibilities would go to the city clerk and what would go to the accounting clerk.

Cathey asked if former city clerk Debbie McLeod might fill in again on weekends so that city doesn’t fall too far behind with its administrative tasks but no decision was reached.

City Administrator Chris Hubbard said that bank statements and budget adjustments were far behind schedule leaving the city’s books outdated and likely inaccurate.

“We have no idea how much money is in the bank account,” said Hubbard.
