CBS 7 News Staff
(Alpine)- On the same night that an Interim City Manager was named in Alpine, the Director of Finance was placed on paid leave.
According to Mayor Avinash Rangra, the city attorney recommended that Ricky Chavez be placed on leave with pay, pending an evalutation by Interim City Manager Charles Harrington.
Harrington was approved by a unanimous vote by the council, and was given a one year contract without medical insurance and retirement.
City Manager Chuy Garcia was fired by councilmembers last week.
This is the second move by the city council after an audit showed miscalculations of overtime and comp time, bank overdrafts and employee payroll advances.
