GREENSBORO, N.C. — The City of Greensboro has fired one its highest paid administrators, according to the Greensboro News & Record.
City spokesman Donnie Turlington said Don Howard, manager of the T.Z. Osborne Water Reclamation Facility, was dismissed on Friday.
Turlington did not comment on the nature of the investigation and said Howard has appealed the decision.
Efforts by the News & Record to reach Howard were unsuccessful. The paper said a number listed in his name has been disconnected.
Howard earned $102,752 per year. He was hired by the city in 2005.
The Water Reclamation Division removes contaminants from wastewater or sewage and releases it safely into nearby streams, according to the city’s website. The Industrial Pretreatment Program is also administered by this division.
