LR sewer worker's firing notice cites verbal abuse, drinking, work on camper

Posted By on Fri, Feb 7, 2014 at 1:50 PM

Stan Miller, the Little Rock Wastewater Utility operations manager who was the subject of a police investigation into his occupancy at treatment plants and use of taxpayer dollars, was fired for reasons other than those stemming from the investigation, according to his personnel file. Miller also used LRWU personnel to work on his camper at Willow Beach while on the clock and took employees to a shooting club for a Christmas party, where alcohol was consumed, also on utility time. Here's the notice of discharge.

Miller's  personnel file,  released today, goes into detail on the reasons for his firing, which besides the use of employees to prepare to lay utility lines to his campers at sewer treatment plants, behavior first reported in the Democrat-Gazette and followed up by the Little Rock police, includes intimidating employees with profanity and threats. Start reading at page 50.

The police report, concludes that Miller's boss, fired CEO Reggie Corbitt, sanctioned the work done to allow Miller to move his trailer to the Adams Field and Fourche Creek plants, has been referred to the Pulaski County prosecutor.

  • Townsend Wolfe, 1935-2017

    Max has posted on the Arkansas Blog the news of Townsend Wolfe's death. The photo Max chose is a great one, but I also wanted to put up this one of Wolfe with his trademark brown cigarette. A More cigarette? A Tiparillo? I don't remember, but I do remember that Wolfe was seldom seen without one. The last time I interviewed him, after the ill-fated "World of the Pharaohs" exhibit, he had quit smoking, but out of long habit patted his shirt pocket, where he'd always kept his cigarettes, from time to time thinking he'd find a pack there before remembering he'd given them up.
