Port Director Don Allee resigns

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Don Allee, Executive Director and CEO of the Mississippi State Port Authority at Gulfport, resigned Friday morning effective November 2, 2012.

Allee has been director at the port for almost 11 years, and saw the port through the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, as well as the BP oil spill.

Allee's resignation comes less than a month before a meeting that's supposed to shape the port's future expansion plans. At that November 15th meeting, a decision should be made about how high the port's elevation should be raised.

Two presentations to port authority members Friday both recommended keeping the port at its current 10 foot elevation. Previous plans raised the port to 25 feet.
