Meeting on LR utility chief's future employment canceled

A special meeting that had been scheduled Tuesday afternoon to discuss the future employment of Little Rock Wastewater Utility chief executive Reggie Corbitt has been canceled.

An official with the utility said the meeting of the Little Rock Sanitary Sewer Committee was canceled because an internal audit is not yet complete. It wasn't immediately clear when the audit would be complete or whether the special meeting would be rescheduled.

Corbitt has been on paid administrative leave since Dec. 10, a day after an Arkansas Democrat-Gazette story showed he approved an arrangement in which Operations Manager Stan Miller lived on utility property at a cost of more than $15,000 in public funds.

Miller was also placed on administrative leave.

Investigations by police and an independent audit firm began after the article appeared.

Corbitt has agreed to resign from the utility if he his paid through the end of the year including an auto allowance, health coverage and legal expenses, the Democrat-Gazette reported Tuesday.

They can't just fire the SOB immediately? Demanding 11 months of severance pay itself should be grounds for termination!
