Rockwood official on leave over questions of credit card use

Posted: Updated:

ROCKWOOD (WATE) - A Rockwood official is on leave after questions about his use of a city credit card.

Public Works Director Tom Pierce was placed on leave without pay on February 17 after city officials brought his credit card statement to Mayor James Watts.

Mayor Watts said auditors looking into the city's books from last year had some unanswered questions about certain purchases.

Mayor Watts said he believes the purchases were related to city business.

The mayor, the municipal administrator and Pierce will have a meeting in the next 30 days to determine what happens next for Pierce.
