City of Knoxville construction supervisor resigns after investigation


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Knoxville mayor's office said a city worker resigned Friday after he was investigated for taking city property.

Max Newman was the construction supervisor in the city's public services division for the past two years. He had previously worked as a construction foreman.

Newman was in a supervisory position for the past 10 years and worked for the city for 31 years.

Mayor's office spokesman Jesse Fox Mayshark said Newman resigned rather than be fired. He said the city did an internal investigation of unauthorized use or removal of its property.

Mayshark said there's an ongoing investigation with the city and the police department. Police officials have not released any other information.
