OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Three years after city planner Eric Meyer left to take the same job with the city of Gautier, Ocean Springs aldermen have approved the expenditure to hire a new planner.

The Mississippi Press reports (https://bit.ly/1kFrRDZ) the city has been without a planner since Meyer’s departure in February 2012. Then-assistant planner Kyle Smith had resigned a few months earlier, along with six planning clerks, leaving what had once been a staff of 14 with just one person, a clerk.

Faced with financial struggles over the past three years, Ocean Springs aldermen took no action to find a new planner or restaff the department.

With city finances back in the black, aldermen are willing to hire a new planner.
