Parking Director Placed on Administrative Leave
Rochester Mayor Tom Richards announced he has placed the Director of Parking for the City on paid administrative leave.
Richards says Susan Olley will be departing from the city soon. Richards says there was no wrongdoing in the case, but there had been continual problems with parking administration that needed to be addressed.
In an audit of the High Falls Parking Garage by the City's office of Public Integrity, officials found issues that were not in compliance with city policy, including controls over monthly keycards, allowing vehicles to park in the garage without paying the standard rates, and not billing businesses for validations in a timely manner.
Molly Clifford, Director of Fire Adminstration, will serve as Interim Director while the city searches for a permanent replacement for Olley.
The Bureau of Parking oversees on-street parking, municipal parking facilities, installation and maintenance of parking meters, collection of parking meter revenue, and activity of parking enforcement officers.
