McALESTER, Okla. (AP) -- McAlester City Manager Randy Green could be suspended Wednesday night.

The McAlester City Council is to meet in a closed-door session to consider suspending Green, who's involved in a pay scandal that's under investigation by state and federal officials.

The city has paid Green $579,500 since July 1999 to buy back unused sick leave and vacation time. The city has paid nearly $361,000 more to buy back leave from other department heads since 2001.

Records obtained by the McAlester News-Capital indicate Green's contract calls for the city to pay him nearly $127,000 a year in retirement, regardless of whether he's fired or retires.

Mayor Dale Covington says action will be taken during Wednesday's meeting and an interim city manager could be appointed.
