Anita Burgess has announced she plans to retire as the attorney for the city of Denton in February.
In an email to the City Council late Friday, she thanked members for the opportunity to serve and for the confidence they placed in her.
"Sitting in this chair has been one of the greatest privileges of my professional career," she said.
Burgess' departure is the second major shakeup in executive level staffing since the City Council declined to renew former City Manager George Campbell's contract last summer.
