The head of operations at the Fargo Public Works Department has been dismissed for allegedly violating the city's policy on awarding contracts.
The city says in a new release that Al Weigel, director of operations for the Public Works Department, circumvented city policy. The city says he violated the rule that any purchase over $25,000 be publicly solicited through bids or requests for proposals.
No other details were immediately available.
Weigel did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
