A former comptroller for the West Knox Utility District is indicted after investigators find evidence that she made unauthorized adjustments her time and some others.
Kimberly Green was found to have adjusted her Paid Time Off balance by more than 200 hours, totaling more than $10,000. She also increased her sick leave balance by more than 85 hours, which she claimed in 2020, totaling more than $3,700, according to investigators.
Green made unauthorized PTO and sick leave balance adjustments to at least nine other current and former employees’ balances, which could have resulted in a cost to the district of almost $28,000.
Some employees told investigators they neither requested nor were aware of these adjustments.
Green was fired in July of 2021 and the district used her final PTO to recover the unauthorized balances that she gave herself.
