Gainesville city auditor Ginger Bigbie turned in her resignation last week and will leave the city on Jan. 13, according to a Sun article.
Bigbie is one of six charter officer positions hired by the city commission. These officers then oversee all other Gainesville employees.
In the past 18 months, all but two of those positions have changed, leaving four interim officers. Only Bigbie and City Clerk Omichele Gainey lack the interim modifier. Gainey also considered leaving the city last year.
However, the city commission approved a plan in September to conduct searches that will result in permanent officers and said they would allow the new commission to finalize the hires after their January swearing-in.
They’ll now have five searches to conduct with Bigbie leaving.
I’m sure there are some city leaders who don’t want the public to see the audit.
