Report: Pinal County dept. like ‘Animal House’

FLORENCE — Three Pinal County employees have been placed on leave after a report detailed that the county’s public works department was out of control and employees’ behavior resembled “Animal House.”

The Case Grande Dispatch reports  that an investigation by Phoenix-based Synergy Seven Inc. found that the department was plagued by unproductive employees, corrupt management, abuse of county resources, improper hiring practices, phone calls going unanswered, kids running around the office, and falsification of time sheets.

The newspaper says one county employee used the phrase that it was “like ‘Animal House’ over there,” to describe the department.

“Animal House” was a 1978 comedy about a group of rowdy fraternity members.

Assistant County Manager Greg Stanley, Public Works Director A.J. Blaha and Business Manager Tina Lawson of Development Services are on leave.
