Cairo Mayor Booker Gainor says he's setting aside his criticisms of Grady County Emergency Management Agency Director Richard Phillips following a meeting with first responders Saturday.
"Some of it was hashed out, some of it wasn't," Gainor said. "But we agreed to bury the hatchet and move forward."
"I can agree with that," Phillips said upon learning of Gainor's comments. "We can agree to disagree."
Gainor had previously stated Phillips should resign for what he argued was a failure to accept outside assistance in preparation for Hurricane Michael and ineffective communication.
Phillips was not present at the Saturday meeting with Gainor and did not wish to comment on the mayor's criticisms.
"I had a job to do and I got it done," Phillips said. "That's all I'm going to say."
