MORE PERSONNEL CHANGES IN NORTHPORT
Northport on Monday announced several more personnel changes.
Within the past month, Northport City Administrator Scott Collins resigned from his position with the city, and on Monday the City Council voted to terminate Finance Director Kenneth McKeown.
Northport Mayor Bobby Herndon said Collins transferred funds from Northport’s reserve fund to the health insurance fund without the Council’s approval, which is not illegal.
It could take months before the Council picks a new city administrator, Herndon said.
“Northport will get through this,” he said. “Northport is a great city. We’re growing rapidly, but we’ve had some measures that have set us back tremendously as far as perspective.”
April Hoffman, who currently works in Northport’s finance department, was named as temporary replacement for McKeown.
