Poulan-- A top Poulan City official under investigation for stealing money has resigned. In an emergency meeting this afternoon Poulan City council members voted unanimously to accept the resignation of city clerk Jerrie Merritt.

Merritt is one of several city workers being investigated by the GBI in connection with more than 2-thousand dollars in missing money from city hall.

"As far as we are concerned we have accomplished what we need to with her relationship with the city of Poulan," says Poulan city attorney Tommy Coleman.

At today's meeting the council also approved a $30,000 dollar loan for the city to plug budget shortfalls. Poulan's mayor says the loan is not connected to the missing money.
