Alecia Gamm-Hubbard, city attorney for Prestonville, is leaving the post as of Sept. 19.

Hubbard announced her resignation, effective Sept. 19, at the regular city commission meeting Aug. 19. 

In a prepared statement, she cited “too many obligations” as her reason for leaving. “I believe we have accomplished a lot,” Hubbard told the commissioners. She said she did not want them to “feel abandoned.”

Hubbard told the commission she would stay with them during the litigation with Can Do Construction; however, she would not be able to attend the monthly meetings, or do the day to day tasks.

Hubbard recommended her law partner Corey T. Gamm, to assume the duties of city attorney. Both attorneys are part of Gamm & Hubbard PLLC law firm based in Warsaw. 

Commissioners took no action at the meeting on who would be Hubbard’s replacement.

Tax rate set

The second reading of the tax rate for 2014 was read and passed. Taxes will remain at 24 cents per $100 of assessed real and personal property. The first reading was July 15.
