(March 27, 2007) Ypsilanti City Clerk Rebecca Bintz submitted her resignation on Monday, March 26th. Bintz had been on the job for two months. Bintz came under fire for the alleged use of a racial epithet while at work.

Mayor Paul Schreiber (Dem) announced that Bintz had tendered her resignation during a special council meeting held Tuesday morning at 7:30. Schreiber told council that Bintz’s resignation would not be effective until it was accepted by the council. Schreiber indicated that he thought that would happen at the April 3rd meeting of City Council.
