St. Joseph City Manger Gary Edwards has resigned, effective
immediately.

Edwards has been with the city for slightly more than two
months, starting November 9th.

A news release from the City of St. Joseph says Edwards
resigned “citing family health issues.” Edwards submitted his letter of
resignation to Mayor Bill McMurray today and it was accepted by the St. Joseph
City Council.

City Attorney Bryan Carter has been named Acting City Manager.
An ordinance will be prepared for the January 25th City Council meeting to name
Carter as the interim city manager.

Edwards came to St. Joseph from Aransas Pass, Texas, where he
served as City Manager.
