County administrator tenders resignation
MERIDIAN — Lauderdale County will soon be looking for a new administrator to help handle public finances.
County supervisors voted yesterday to accept Mike Sumrall’s resignation, effective May 30.
Sumrall ran unsuccessfully for state auditor as a Democrat in 2007 and has held the Lauderdale County job about two years. He says he’ll return to his hometown of Mt. Olive.
The Meridian Star reports Sumrall is resigning because of unspecified health reasons and because of tensions with two of the five supervisors.
Craig Hitt has complained Sumrall doesn’t give him information other supervisors receive. Joe Norwood has called for Sumrall’s resignation more than once since a January board meeting where the two argued over proper protocol for county credit card use.
