Bryant removed as city administrator

Marion Mayor Mickey Alexander has issued a statement on behalf of the City of Marion this morning. In part, it says Mark Bryant has been terminated as city administrator.

Bryant was charged last Thursday with three felonies (see previous post). Investigators say the charges were in response to alleged trafficking, involving drugs being smuggled into the Crittenden County Detention Center. Bryant was jailed last Thursday night then released Friday on bond.

Attempts to contact Bryant have been unsuccessful.

The mayor says he will soon appoint a temporary administrator.
