TALLAHASSEE — Two officials at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles have resigned after state workers were sent to clean up damage from Hurricane Michael at the Georgia home of one of the officials, the department said Tuesday.
Kelley Scott, the department's director of administrative services, and William "Shane" Phillips, chief of office services, handed in their resignations following an investigation by the department's inspector general.
Scott failed to report a "possible ethics violation" relating to state workers taking department vehicles and equipment to her storm-damaged property in Colquitt, Georgia, in October, investigators concluded in a written report released to the Miami Herald. And Phillips was "not forthcoming with information" during the investigation into possible misuse of state resources, according to the report.
