Level Plains Update

Level Plains Mayor Tim Jackson
By  | 

Citizens in Level Plains are no doubt talking about last night's unexpected resignations of the mayor and the town's five city council members.

The resignations will take effect on February 28th, according to town attorney Chad Tindol. He said when Mayor Tim Jackson's made the surprise announcement, he did so under one condition -- that all five council members resign with him.

Tindol said the city council and the mayor had been odds over numerous issues facing the community. Since late last year, the town has been in an uproar amid political conflict and questions about the town's finances.

It will be up to Governor Bob Riley to fill the vacancies.
