MOUNT VERNON — Greg Vickers, a foreman with the Mount Vernon Water/Wastewater Department, has lost his job with the city.
Mount Vernon Safety-Service Director Dave Glass informed the Mount Vernon News late Wednesday morning that Greg Vickers’s employment had been terminated by the city.
Vickers was accused of using Water/Wastewater Department purchase orders to buy items for his own use.
“As a result of my investigation of the facts and the information provided by you at your pre-disciplinary hearing on Monday, Oct. 17, 2011, I have concluded that on numerous occasions you have used your authority to make purchases for the City of Mount Vernon to buy items for personal use,” Glass stated in Vickers’ termination letter. “Your conduct is grounds for termination of employment.”
The notice terminates Vickers’ employment effective Oct. 18, 2011.
