BREAKING: Bay St Louis City Clerk Robert Clark has resigned (Updated)

Folks the situation is still fluid but Slabbed has confirmed Clark’s resignation. I’ll update this post as more information becomes available. Clark’s departure makes the 3rd City clerk to leave the position this year.

Update 12-16-15:

Mums the word at City Hall after the Mayor denied that Clark resigned as several inquiries from Bay City Council President Joey Boudin have evidently not garnered a response from Mayor Fillingame. I’m not going into a he said/she said thing because such is pointless endeavor as Mr. Clark has moved on.

If I may be so bold to point out that there are several CPA firms right here on the coast that could provide many of the services performed by a City Clerk especially the tasks associated with monthly financial statement preparation. Given the circumstances the City may wish to strongly consider contracting out these functions until the next election to insure continuity in the bookkeeping.
