JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Jackson City Attorney Monica Allen has submitted her resignation, according to Ward One Councilman Ashby Foote.

We reached out to the city attorney’s office and Allen was not available for comment.

Director of Communications Michelle Atoa said it was a personnel matter and could not comment further.

It was not known who would replace her.
