Hartselle City Superintendent Vic Wilson said former CFO John Godwin was put on paid administrative leave December 1 pending an in investigation in relation to personnel issues. Wilson said previously that he could not comment on personnel issues.

The Hartselle City Schools Board called a special meeting set for Thur., Jan. 12, at 5:30 p.m. but it was cancelled on the morning of the meeting because Godwin submitted a letter of resignation to the board.

According to Wilson, the letter simply stated, “Members of the Board, Please accept this letter of resignation as CSFO from Hartselle City Board of Education effective January 21, 2017.”

When the Hartselle Enquirer contacted Godwin via phone about the personnel issues, Godwin simply declined to comment on the situation and resignation. Godwin was put on paid administrative beginning Dec. 1. Cara Standridge and Tara Humphries, two former Hartselle City Schools finance employees, also resigned December 13.

Wilson stated they have a plan in place to look for an interim CFO and utilize the staff they have now.

“Once we are prepared and ready, we will post the position for a long-term CSFO,” Wilson said.
