Fired Maintenance Man

village watchdog

Mooresville, NC

#1 Jun 7, 2007
An front page newspaper article voiced the uncertain reasons a city maintenance man expressed regarding his being dismissed by the board of trustess was a joke.

Two board members had reporting seeing him at the lagoon sleeping in the city truck, not once but on several occasions. Another board member had questioned his using the village owned cell phone for his personal use. He was told that any major work or repairs to sewer equipment should be acquired by taking "Bids" and should have approval of the board. He ignored those instructions. He went on vacation without notifying the board that he would be gone. He called in sick and was out for two days and did not bring in the required doctor's notice. He was sent a certified letter by the village and he refused to take delivery of it.

This man now says he will sue the village for a MILLION dollars?

It has been discovered that he was given a raise two years ago, but that there is no documentation that this was authorized by the board. Did the fired city clerk take it upon herself to give this employee a raise?
