ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - Albany officials say the city manager is stepping down after three years of running the city’s day-to-day operations.

City Manager James Taylor did not show up for a meeting with Albany commissioners Tuesday morning. One of Taylor’s top assistants, Wes Smith, confirmed his boss had submitted his letter of resignation.

WALB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1kAMdYt ) some commissioners Tuesday had wanted to talk with Taylor about a large bonus recently paid to a city employee. In his resignation letter, Taylor said city employees “should be rewarded for thinking outside the box and bringing their best to the table, not harassed.”

Taylor had previously served as an assistant city manager when Albany commissioners have him the top job in 2011.
