NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Exactly one month after hiring its first appointed clerk, Natchez is now without a city clerk.

Mayor Darryl Grennell tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/2aePjYf) former city clerk Wendy McClain was terminated Monday for violation of city policy following a specially called meeting regarding the matter.

Adams County Board of Supervisors Attorney Scott Slover provided legal counsel for the meeting.

At the advice of Slover, Grennell and the aldermen declined to say which specific policy McClain allegedly violated.

Slover said the city has no indication McClain violated the law, only city policy.

The aldermen authorized Grennell to seek an interim city clerk to be hired as soon as possible, as well as the advertisement for a permanent city clerk.

McClain was sworn in as city clerk July 1.
