Sandusky police escorted Scott Miller out of his office Wednesday, when he was ordered to turn in his keys and identification badge. City manager Nicole Ard refused to discuss any allegations against Miller, other than saying he faces a disciplinary investigation concerning his conduct.
In a memo Ard sent to Miller Wednesday, she told him he’s barred from city property while on leave and he cannot attend events or meetings related to city business. “You are required to cooperate with all investigations concerning your conduct,” the letter stated.
Sandusky police said Ard asked them to handle a “portion” of the investigation, although it’s not criminal in nature. There is no police report documenting any incident involving Miller, police said, because Ard verbally asked officers to assist in the matter. Miller, a 21-year employee, earns about $70,000 a year.
When reached by phone Friday, he said he has no idea why Ard placed him on leave.
“I believe my personnel record is pretty much spotless,” Miller said.
