Killeen Finance Director Barbara Gonzales and three other city employees ended their employment with the city of Killeen Wednesday, according to a city news release.

After a series of afternoon meetings, Gonzales was terminated, Fleet Services Director Kim Randall retired, technician David Riddle resigned and employee John Acker was terminated.

The terminations occurred following an investigation of the Fleet Services Division, which began in October. The four city employees had been on administrative leave since Oct. 5.

“In a closed session last night the council was briefed on the possibility of litigation regarding these matters,” Mayor Dan Corbin said.

The terminations were handled by City Manager Glenn Morrison.

“The council fully supports the decisions of the city manager. Because of the fact that the two have hired lawyers we expect there to be litigation,” Corbin said.
