NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - After 32 years of service to Natchez, David Gardner has stepped down from his city engineer post.

While Gardner said Wednesday he is confident the city will fill the position soon - or seek assistance from outside consultants - he did say a long list of projects need to be addressed immediately.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1yJK3gB ) the projects Gardner cited as needing immediate attention include drainage repair in North Natchez, overlay and micro-seal surfacing of city streets, Bridge of Sighs construction and the St. Catherine Street trails project.

Alderwomen Joyce Arceneaux-Mathis says the city board plans to discuss Tuesday whether the city should hire a new city engineer, or completely do away with the position and depend on outside consulting firms.
