Ex-Ala. superintendent asked to repay buyout
PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A former school superintendent in central Alabama has been asked to repay nearly $80,000 after a state audit determined his buyout was unauthorized.
An Examiners of Public Accounts audit completed Friday found the Autauga County Board of Education did not have the authority to offer a buyout to former superintendent Greg Faulkner. The audit says the board had no authority to buy out an elected superintendent's term of office.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports (http://on.mgmadv.com/YP4CG7 ) Faulkner was given more than $79,100 to retire April 30, 2012 instead of at the end of his term on Dec. 31, 2012.
