The city has confirmed Todd Greenburg is on leave, but details surrounding the decision are scarce.
Todd Greenburg is the top member of the city's legal staff.
His leave began last Thursday October 17th.
The city says the issue is a personnel matter and will not comment on specifics.
While Mayor Tari Renner has confirmed he and Greenburg have had disagreements about city transparency in the past, he's not saying if this paid leave is related to those disputes.
Greenburg is an at-will employee so he doesn't have a contract with the city.
More information surrounding the matter is expected to be released next month.
