SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF)- The street department supervisor in Scottsboro was suspended for thirty days and city officials are giving few
details as to the reasons why.
Mayor Melton Potter
confirmed he placed street superintendent Ronnie Dolberry on leave for thirty
days without pay effective Monday. The reasons for which the
mayor said will not be disclosed on advice of the city attorney.
Dolberry served for nearly
six years as superintendent of the city's street department.
Mayor Melton Potter said Dolberry has not been suspended before but did receive a written reprimand
approximately two years ago for an unrelated incident. The mayor only said Dolberry's suspension is due to violations of city policy.
Potter did confirm there was an accident
within the department two weeks ago but declined to say if the accident had
anything to do with the suspension.
