COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - The chief financial officer for the city of Columbus has resigned from his job, confirmed city spokesman Joe Dillon.

Milton Rawle submitted his resignation to the city council this week.

Rawle had been suspended by the council and had returned to work last week.

The suspension came after an audit showed the city had overspent nearly $880,000 in 2018.

City officials say a part-time consultant will oversee the CFO's duties until a replacement is hired.
