Brazil City Planning Administrator Michele Altman submitted her letter of resignation to Mayor Ann Bradshaw Monday morning.
"Her letter stated her reason for resigning is that she is seeking employment elsewhere," Bradshaw said. "I just want to wish her the best."
Altman had been the City Planning Administrator since July 2007, and also held the position at times under former Mayors Kenny Crabb and Tom Arthur.
For now, the city is accepting applications and resumes for the open position.
"We have posted notices of the opening throughout our offices and with the Department of Workforce Development," Bradshaw said. "We have had a couple of inquiries already and the deadline to turn in applications and resumes is Monday, Aug. 18, at 4 p.m."
Bradshaw added that applications may be turned in at the Mayor's or Human Resources Office at City Hall.
As of press time, The Times was unable to contact Altman for comment.
