LENOIR CITY ó According to documents obtained by the News Sentinel, four Lenoir City assistant clerks have received written reprimands for falsifying time cards.
But the paperwork for the employees, who remain on the job, was not in their personnel files this week during a public inspection by a reporter, and city officials say they donít know where the paperwork is.
The workers were also reprimanded for breaching court procedures and writing a faulty warrant, according to the documents.
Newly appointed Treasurer/Recorder/Clerk Jimmy Wilburn and recently appointed City Attorney James Scott said they were unaware of the write-ups for assistant clerks Jennifer Jackson, Shelley Herron, Rebekah Haydon and Julie Harvey.
After Wilburn met Wednesday with a News Sentinel reporter, he and Mayor Tony Aikens asked District Attorney General Russell Johnson to investigate.
More details as they develop online and in Fridayís News Sentinel.
