OGDENSBURG, New York (WWNY) - Ogdensburg City Manager Mohideen Buharie is officially out.

City Council met for a special meeting Wednesday evening, voting 6-0 to accept Buharie’s resignation, effective immediately.

Councillor Nichole Kennedy was absent for the vote.

He had been willing to stay on through July 28 to help with a smooth transition, but was told a majority of council wanted him gone by Tuesday afternoon.

City Planner Andrea Smith was appointed as interim city manager, also in a 6-0 vote.

She served in the interim role from November 2022 until Buharie took the job March 1st.
