CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA) - The Calhoun City Board of Aldermen voted to suspend the city's police chief without pay pending the results of an investigation of allegedly falsifying time cards.
The Board voted Monday night during a special meeting to discuss Latana Williams' employment with the city.
The State Auditor's Office charged Williams with embezzlement for clocking in on-duty while working in another city at a retail store.
Investigators arrested Williams on March 10 on the charges.
During the same meeting, City Clerk Raenell Moore submitted a formal letter to retire on March 31.
Moore told WTVA 9 News she had been talking about leaving the job for several weeks. She intends to spend more time with her family. She said the Board of Aldermen is already interviewing people for the job.
Also, during the Monday night meeting, Mayor Amye Hill announced she was stepping down from the post. Moore says Hill had put her home up for sale last year and is moving to the Mississippi Delta to be closer to her family.
