City worker in alleged harassment suit resigns

The Hazlehurst Board of Aldermen unanimously voted to accept the resignation of Susan Edwards, Water Department employee, during a special called meeting held on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 11:30 a.m.  Aldermen who were present at the time of the vote, and voting ‘yea’, were Frank Jones (Ward 1), Ron Sims (Ward 2), Shirley Sandifer (Ward 3) and Ricky Akin (Ward 5).  Ward 3’s Daryl McMillan came later to the meeting, but missed the vote.
