As Rick Kriseman prepares to become St. Petersburg's mayor on Thursday, another longtime administrator resigned from the city's payroll after 29 years.
Clarence Scott III, who joined the city in 1984, announced his departure on Friday. He headed Leisure and Community Services, which encompasses parks, libraries, golf courses and housing and community development. His last day is Dec. 31, said Gary Cornwell, human resources director.
Scott earned about $131,000 a year. Cornwell called Scott's departure a "mutually agreed upon decision" between Scott and Kriseman.
