NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Natchez officials met for more than two hours in executive session Tuesday to discuss the job performance and other personnel matters related to engineering department employees.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/NBJSTW ) the discussion was spurred by the recent proposal by City Engineer and Water Works Superintendent David Gardner to separate the city’s engineering department from Water Works.

The city currently contracts with Water Works for engineering services.

No action was taken Tuesday regarding the engineering department, and the board has not yet decided if it wants to discontinue the contract for engineering services with Water Works.

Officials said after the meeting Tuesday the board of aldermen will likely call a special meeting or work session to discuss the future of the contract between the city and Water Works.
