City Clerk’s retirement approved, but reluctantly
A matter of city business that almost did not get done during Tuesday’s meeting of the Batesville mayor and board of aldermen was accepting a letter of resignation from City Clerk Laura Herron.
Herron plans to retire in June after 30 years of service, but Mayor Jerry Autrey had difficulty getting a motion from an alderman to accept her letter of resignation.
After Mayor Jerry Autrey went around the table seeking a motion from each alderman, Alderman Bill Dugger finally raised a little finger to accept her letter. Aldermen then voted unanimously but reluctantly.
