NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Natchez aldermen have voted to remove the city’s tourism director and seek the resignations from each member of the Natchez Convention Promotion Commission.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1VsYi7j) the move comes less than two months after a Feb. 12 incident between director Kevin Kirby and one of his employees.

The newspaper reports that dispute ultimately kicked off an investigation into the Convention and Visitors Bureau’s finances, Kirby’s job performance and, at times, a power struggle between the convention promotion commission and the mayor and board of aldermen.

The vote to end Kirby’s employment occurred after an hour-long closed-door session Monday.

Mayor Butch Brown said he would choose an interim director soon, and a new hiring committee would be formed to choose another permanent director.
