Macon's fired former Public Works Director Richard Powell has one week to request an appeal hearing.
That's after he initially waived his right to a hearing before city council, according to City Attorney Pope Langstaff.
Powell was fired in February.
According to a letter from the Mayor's office, the administration alleges that Powell committed several offenses.
They include failure to create a zero-based budget without extensive reworking, lack of consistency in imposing disciplinary actions, hunting wild hogs on city property, and inappropriate conduct involving a female employee.
In a letter obtained by 13WMAZ, Powell defends his work performance, stating that he not only increased efficiency within his department, he also saved the city tens of thousands of dollars.
Langstaff says after his firing, Powell was adamant he wanted to submit his appeal in writing.
