City awaits DNR decision regarding logs

The city of Seligman has fired Tony Amos, former main sewer operator, as an ongoing investigation looks into whether he allegedly did not log records.

"We haven't heard anything from [the Department of Natural Resources] yet," said Brian Nichols, Seligman city clerk. "I don't know exactly what is going to happen there."

The Seligman Board of Aldermen unanimously voted to terminate Amos' employment during its monthly meeting in March.

Nichols has previously said that DNR could possibly pull Amos' license, or possibly fine the city.

The city suspended Amos last month, as it discovered that he may not have kept records on the operation of the 350,000-square-foot lagoon, which is west of Seligman on Farm Road 2290.

The lagoon has a storage capacity of 6,539,460 gallons and a 321,776-square-foot emergency spillway.
