Looks like the Mayor Melton era ends today.

So, Does this mean no one represents the Police Department? If Jimerson is the Interim Director of Parks & Rec, then why does JPD not have an Interim Chief? Personel is also listed with an Interim Director.

Razor, is Tyrone Lewis the permanent chief or the acting chief? I thought he was a permanent appointment. Dos anyone think that Frank Bluntson will be acting mayor again?

L.W.--Tyrone Lewis is Interim Police Chief. The city council decided not to vote him in as Chief, being that the election process was approaching. No I don't think Bluntson will be acting mayor, maybe Walker or McLemore.

Looks like McLemore is the acting Mayor. Lewis is not a permanent appointment. Permanent appointments require a council vote. Melton put Bluntson in place last time, I believe, which is not how it's supposed to be done. According to the Mississippi Code, council should appoint a temporary mayor when the mayor is disabled.

Thanks for the clarification. So much has gone on that it's hard for me to keep all this stuff straight sometimes.
