To the members of the Dothan/Houston County Communications District Board and the E9-1-1 Advisory Committee.

This email serves to inform you that I met with Mayor Schmitz on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 and submitted my resignation from the position of the E9-1-1 Systems Coordinator for the Dothan/Houston County Communications District.

A great deal of thought and consideration has been put into this decision and has not been reached quickly or easily, but I find it is necessary to submit my resignation for personal reasons.

I believe a lot has been accomplished over the past two years serving as your E9-1-1 Coordinator and I appreciate the opportunity to have served the City of Dothan and Houston County in this capacity.

In accordance with the terms of the "Employment Agreement Between the City of Dothan/Houston County Communications District Board and the E9-1-1 Systems Coordinator" my resignation will be effective 30 days from the date on which I notified Mayor Schmitz. As such, September 25, 2014 will be my last day of employment.

I will do all that I can, prior to my departure, to assist in the transfer of this position to an interim or permanent appointee.

Respectively,
Steve Collins
