Memphis Fleet Services Employees to Get Pensions

August 09, 2010

MEMPHIS, TN - Memphis Commercial AppealFleet Services administrator Arthur Adams and three other General Services employees who have retired or resigned while they were under investigation by the City of Memphis for the way Fleet Services was operated, including a contract with a tire-repair company the FBI is investigating, have had their pensions approved by the city pension board, reported The Commercial Appeal.

Adams allegedly purchased three flat-screen televisions and parts for his Cadillac Escalade through city contracts and eventually retired in June after he was charged with DUI while driving a city vehicle while off duty. He will receive a yearly pension of $52,994.

The former employees still would receive their pensions even if they had been fired by the city, according to the Human Resources Division.

Chief Administrative Officer George Little said there is nothing short of a felony conviction related to the former employees' jobs that would allow the city to take away the pensions.

Little said some of the employees may have been expecting criminal prosecution and decided to retire early and get their pensions, according to the newspaper.
