A 12-year vacation?

Norfolk City Council has learned that an employee of its Community Services Board collected a salary and benefits for 12 years without going to work.

The identity of the employee – who has been fired – and the circumstances that allowed such absenteeism haven’t been disclosed, but City Council members said they expect to discuss them and other recent embarrassments at a retreat next month.

The disclosure follows reports about allegedly improper use of a city credit card by the commissioner of revenue and the purchase of a cell phone for a gang member by an assistant to the city manager.

One council member said such incidents are doing “serious damage” to the city’s image. The Virginian-Pilot has details.
