LEMA director resigns

May 8, 2001
Lauderdale County Emergency Management Agency Director Eddie Ivy resigned Monday during an executive session with the board of supervisors. His resignation is effective May 15.
Ivy said he will pursue a full-time career with Barham Funeral Home, where he has worked in a part-time capacity for about a year.
He said he doesn't know if supervisors will appoint an interim director in his absence or if they will hire a replacement immediately. The agency's assistant director is Jamie Bunyard.
A native of Quitman, Ivy began working in emergency services in 1988. Starting as a volunteer in Clarke County, he worked his way up to director of the Clarke County Emergency Management Agency in 1992. In June 1994, he began his seven-year tenure as director at LEMA.
