Seneca County’s Director of Emergency Management, Melissa Taylor, has resigned, effective this past Tuesday.
Seneca County Manager John Sheppard confirmed the news in an email yesterday. Taylor’s resignation comes near the culmination of an internal investigation directed by Sheppard into the Finance Department. During the investigation, Taylor was placed on paid administrative leave. Sheppard says there will be an internal investigation into Taylor’s conduct. The county continues to be tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding the investigation.
Taylor has been in charge of the department since 2015.
