Baldwin city administrator Jerry Presley has resigned following a month of closed door meetings and an effort by the mayor and some council members to get rid of him.
After meeting in closed session for approximately two hours and 15 minutes on Monday night, the Baldwin City Council unanimously accepted the resignation of Presley, effective Monday night.
Following the closed session, Mayor Jerry Neace called for a motion to enter into a “mutual separation agreement” with Presley. The motion to accept the agreement was approved unanimously. Council member Rodney King was absent from Tuesday’s meeting due to an illness.
The agreement gives the reason for termination of employment as “mutually agreed separation due to irreconcilable differences.”
“I want everybody to know Jerry Presley had the agreement written up,” said council member Robert Bohannon.
