Morro Bay City Attorney Robert Shultz announced his resignation.
In October the city council voted to part ways with Schultz and placed him on administrative leave.
Anne Russell has been serving as interim city attorney since November 1.
Below is the letter Schultz sent to KSBY News:
Following 16 years of service, I have resigned as City Attorney for the City of Morro Bay pursuant to a Separation Agreement approved by the City Council tonight.
It has been a privilege and an honor to have served the City of Morro Bay these past 16 years. I believe public service is the highest and most noble calling, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the Morro Bay community. Serving as City Attorney for Morro Bay has allowed me to be part of many historic achievements for the City.
As I reflect on the past 16 years, I am grateful for having earned the respect and appreciation of my colleagues and community. I am confident my record and many contributions to the City of Morro Bay will be the prevailing memory of my many years of service.
As I say goodbye I wish to thank the staff of the City of Morro Bay; it has been an incredible experience to work side-by-side with you for so many years. You are great public servants, doing an often thankless job, serving with dignity and professionalism. I am fortunate to have worked with such an outstanding group of individuals. I will miss you all.
