Today, the Athens City Schools Superintendent will announce plans to upgrade and improve the district's schools.
Boaz Police Chief Terry Davis turned in his resignation Tuesday night.
He turned in his notice after speaking with the mayor on Memorial Day.
Mayor Tim Walker said it really was out of the blue.
Davis gave little time for a transition period, opting to turn in his notice saying he planned to retire effective June 1.
Davis has served as chief of Boaz since January 2002. He served as deputy chief before that and started with Boaz in 1993.
Davis's law enforcement career began in Sardis City in 1983. He also spent time as an Etowah County deputy.
Walker had little to say concerning Davis's sudden departure except to say they are looking forward to making the police department better in the future.
Deputy Chief Todd Adams met with the mayor Wednesday morning and has been named interim chief.
Attempts to reach Davis for comment were unsuccessful.
