LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) - Ami Fields, the Lake City Interim City Manager, emailed her resignation letter to the city clerk on Tuesday.


Eight minutes later, Fields sent a subsequent email:


As the former Human Resources Manager, Fields took over following previous City Manager Joe Helfenberger’s termination earlier this summer.

At last week’s city council meeting, a motion to review her performance was tabled and the council voted to hire an outside law firm to investigate a complaint filed against her.

This comes less than a week after City Council Member Chris Greene handed in his resignation.

The City Council is scheduled to meet tomorrow to discuss replacing Fields. City Attorney Fred Koberlein will guide them through the process.
