Officials indicate the board of aldermen was aware of  Brown’s plans to leave the office prior to the executive session.  “Actually, this was just a month earlier than what he was probably going to anyway,” said Wallace,” We have just had one individual file for mayor and that’s Allen Gentry.   A lot of people know Allen. He’s a retired U.S.D.A. rural development agent and worked for them for many, many years.”

Wallace said the board was prepared for the resignation.  “Nothing’s really changed,” said Wallace,” We have a mayor pro-term, so we didn’t miss a beat.  We really look forward to Allen coming in and we thank Gary for his service.  He was a great mayor and we expect Allen to be the same.”

Gentry will be appointed as mayor in February and he will continue in the role once officially elected in April.
