Terri Velasquez‘s 30-day paid administrative leave ended at midnight last night.
But the Bach administration is refusing to say whether Velasquez, a longtime city employee who was most recently director of financial and administrative services, is still employed by the city or even if she received severance pay.
“This remains a personnel matter and we do not have additional information to release at this time,” city spokeswoman Mary Scott said today in an email.
Velasquez, who has worked for the city since 1987, was placed on paid administrative leave by Steve Cox, Mayor Steve Bach’s chief of staff, on June 25.
Cox and Bach have refused to say why, calling it a personnel issue.
“I can’t discuss it because it’s a personnel matter,” Bach said July 14.
“I will tell you that Steve Cox … is authorized to make that type of decision,” he said. “He consulted with me in advance. I was aware of the decision. I’m sorry I can’t tell you more. But it’s not a closed matter yet.”
