Early August Recognized Ihen by Mayor Williams, Mrs, Marlin said lhal direct supervision of city am- aloyes is not (he responsibility of City Council, but the respon- sibility of the city manager, phe continued that, she had called the mailer of Alton's pur- chase of a house lo the atten- :ion of the city manager early 'n August. The house had been acquired jy the city through condemna- .ion and subsequenlly bids for ils sale were solicited. Alton submitted, in the name of his daughter, lhe high bid and pur- chased lhe house. Mrs. Martin said she felt this was a violation of the charier and asked Lee lo investigate. She referred lo a letter on (he council lable, purportedly from Lee and tlaled Aug. 21, slating that he had investigated lhe mailer. Resignation Move She llien said (hat if Lee had properly clarified the situation with Alton at that time Alton would not have made subse- quent purchases in his own be- half "and this matter never would have come before the council." Inasmuch as lhe cily manager had not, to her satis- faction, settled the matter, Mrs. Martin said she felt the council should ask for his resignation. It was subsequent to this that Mayor Williams told Mrs. Mar- tin that her "emolions" were oul of order "on those facts alone." "If there is something else, then let's discuss il and gel it over with. If nol, I'll enlertain motion for Williams said. Mrs. Marlin said that "there are other things" about which she is concerned but did not elaborate because "the commit- tee and I were authorized by ihc council lo investigate cnly this one thing." Declined Specifics Asked to clarify this later, Mrs. Marlin told newsmen she believes there have been other instances of city employes act- ing in their own behalf while engaged in their regular jobs for the city. Again, however, she declined to be specific about such alleged violations. Mrs. Marlin reiterated that she had not been authorized by the council to investigate such mailers. Reminded that she had taken an oath to uphold laws of the city, state and nation svhen she was sworn into office, Mrs. Martin replied: "Whal good would il It would be passed over and hush- ed up like this Alton thing."
